Call for Submissions
The Emerald Issue, the 10th annual edition of Fairy Tale Review, will feature work inspired by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Seeking: Poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, drama, scholarship, research, artwork that imaginatively explores Oz ephemera; from creative retellings/revisions of the Oz tales (whether the literary series or the classic film, which will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2014) to work inspired/influenced by all the many things that make up the Wizard’s Oz and Dorothy’s Kansas. We have a particular interest in a green interpretation: work that references the environment and the role of nature (from cyclones to gemstones). In keeping with Fairy Tale Review’s open aesthetic, your work may be in any style and form, and the path it takes down that famed Emerald Road may be literal or enigmatic. Translations welcome. The Emerald Issue will be co-edited by Kate Bernheimer, Founder and Editor of Fairy Tale Review, and Timothy Schaffert, who Guest Edited 2011's The Brown Issue, from which work was selected for the O. Henry Prize Stories Anthology.

The submission period is March 1, 2013–August 1, 2013. The Emerald Issue will appear in 2014.

All submissions will be responded to by September 1, 2013.

We will consider only previously unpublished material. In cases of translation to English please provide proof of permission to translate and/or indicate public domain material.
