Timeless Tales - Snow Queen - Call for Submissions
Timeless Tales exclusively publishes retellings of fairy tales and myths. We only accept submissions that are retellings of the fairytale or myth listed as our theme. We don't accept original fairy tales or stories outside of our current theme.
These are the known upcoming themes:
#7. The Snow Queen (MUST be related to the Hans Christian Andersen story. Read the original HERE)
*Submissions open August 1 - September 1, 2016*
Length: Up to 2,000 words. Under 1,500 preferred. (For poems, you may technically send us multipe pieces up to 1,500 words total, but please be nice to our editor and only send your best and most polished work).
Genres: As of 2016, we are now accepting poetry! In general, please think outside the box! We love to see modernizations, sci-fi retellings, prequels, continuations, mash-ups, etc. Just no eroticism, please (see Content section).
Want to know what makes an A+ fairy tale retelling?, HERE is my blog post about it.
Content: While Timeless Tales is not targeted specifically at children, it is a fairly conservative magazine, especially when it comes to language and sexual content, so I intend to keep the stories in the PG-13 range or below. However, I have a deep appreciation for the darker side of many original fairy tales, so don’t assume I only want “happy” stories.
Pay Rate: As of 2016, we have slightly raised our rates. We now pay a flat rate of $20 per piece accepted--both poetry and fiction. You'll also get a free year of our audio narrations (usually reserved for our patrons).continued
