Contact Us and Submit

We are a new literary journal, hungry for submissions and feedback from the community of authors, readers and "wrimos." If you have works of fiction, poems or essays 300-8000 words in length based on mythology, fairy tales, and lore, we want to know about your work. We also accept art, illustrations and photography on those themes. Please use our forms to send your works and learn more about our production calendar. 

To submit, please use the submission manager at Submittable 

We understand that not everyone can pay the submission fee. We charge as little as possible to offset our cost of the management software but want to make sure that the fee isn't a barrier to receiving creative works. If you are unable to pay through, you are invited to email us at to request free submission. 

UPDATE: Our editor has been very ill and is behind on reading submission. You are still welcome to submit but please know that the wait time will be longer than usual. Publications for 2019 have been suspended while we catch up, all publication agreements will be honored by the end of 2020.


*Submissions must 300-8000 words and be recognizably based on mythology, fairy tales, folklore or legends. If you have based your work on an obscure mythology, please include a paragraph reference your inspiring story/culture/work. 

*Please include a cover letter:  Please note if your work is simultaneously submitted or previously published. Authors retain all rights to their work. We will happily print previously published works with a courtesy note to original printer. Please include a short 3rd person bio (less than 100 words). If your work is accepted, your bio will be printed at the back of the collection in our list of contributors.

Writing a bio can be hard! If you struggle, fill this in:

“______ is an author from ______, primarily writing {genre} and {genre}. They are previously published in _______. When not writing, they enjoy ____ and ____.”
