HERE IS HOW YOU SUBMIT AND FORMAT AND WHEN Only the kind of submissions outlined below will be accepted at The Fairy Tale Magazine in 2023. Writers will have a chance to submit fairy-tale inspired stories/poems twice in 2023.

This will be the window for works that will be published in the March and June issues of The Fairy Tale Magazine.

Taking Submissions: Tales from the Moonlit Path Fiendish Fathers Day Issue

Tales from the Moonlit Path

Deadline: June 2nd, 2023 Payment: $10 Theme: Father's Day We are now open to poetry and fiction submissions for our Fiendish Father’s Day Issue, slated for publication June 2023. We are open to all of our regular horror themes as well as stories that have a Father’s Day element. We are also open to Fiendish Father’s Day Challenge Submissions.

Please note: If you do not want your story title added to the tracking page, let us know when you submit your work. (Author name is not listed, only story title).   Tales from the Moonlit Path publishes dark, eerie, speculative stories. Horror is not a necessary element, although fiction should contain some aspect of the weak, frail, changeable human condition. Gore and explicit sex for the sake of visceral shock will not find a home here, though we are not opposed to it in general, if it belongs in the story. We are interested in character-driven stories more so than plot-driven, and we prefer dark fiction that makes us think, makes us feel, wraps us in its well-spun dream. Hard sci-fi and fantasy are a hard sell for us, but not impossible. Revenge and ironic stories are also a hard sell.

So please, fiction must be no longer than 2,000 words. Please include a short cover letter with your story, your name, email address, paypal information for payment, word count (please make sure an accurate word count is included...
