Fairy Tale Review
Founded in 2005 by Kate Bernheimer, Fairy Tale Review is an annual literary journal dedicated to publishing new fairy tales and to helping raise public awareness of fairy tales as a diverse, innovative art form. Work from Fairy Tale Review has been selected for inclusion in The O. Henry Prize Stories Anthology,Best New American Voices, Best American Fantasy, and listed as “Notable” in Best American Short Stories, among other honors.
Fairy Tale Review is edited by MFA students enrolled in the Program in Creative Writing at the University of Arizona in Tucson. The University of Arizona positions are funded until 2015 through a competitive Graduate Incentives in Growth Award; the editor is hard at work seeking grants and gifts in order to keep these vital positions on hand.
In 2012, Wayne State University Press approached Fairy Tale Review with interest in acquiring the journal; their office now deftly handles all production, subscription, and distribution services for us. We were honored to join Wayne State University Press’s other fairy-tale publications, including titles in the prestigious Series in Fairy-Tale Studies andMarvels & Tales: The Journal of Fairy-Tale Studies. In early 2014, through Wayne State University Press, Fairy Tale Review joined an amazing line-up of peer review journals on JStor.
