  • Additional info

    We welcome stories written in any fantasy genre or genres, including stories that blur genre lines. We are especially interested in high fantasy, fairy tales, and myth. We also welcome stories that have been translated into English and stories that engage with non-Western fantasy genre traditions. We accept multiple submissions. We especially encourage submissions from BIPOC translators and translators working with the literatures of the Global South, along with translations from languages underrepresented in white Anglophone publishing. We welcome translated works written in various styles, structures, and speculative genres. Please note that our editorial preference will always skew towards intersectional/marginalized/under-represented/diverse, Canadian and Indigenous/Native/First Nations creators.
