April 2018 Letter from the Editor

Dear Readers, 

Welcome to Curating Alexandria, our new web and ebook publication dedicated to supporting new fiction authors and works centered around or inspired by classical mythology, fairy tales and legends (mythology fan-fiction!). 

To anyone paying attention, the world of publishing has radically changed in the last decade. To say that the market is crowded is an understatement. Social media allows anyone and everyone to present their lives as celebrity, to chatter in endless self promotion. Self publishing has lowered the bar for what creations enter the market. For many readers and authors, this has been a frustrating turn of events. Curating Alexandria exists, not to add to the noise, but to offer interested readers a well curated, well edited collection of emerging talent.

We know your options of reading are near limitless today; thank you for being here and supporting something new.  In the words of the great *Anton Ego "But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations, the new needs friends. ...Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere."

Happy Reading,

Sabrina Bingham
