Accepting submissions to our upcoming Once Upon a Fairytale anthology!

Harvardwood Publishing is reinventing the fairytale! We are accepting submissions for our upcoming anthology, Once Upon a Fairytale, which will feature modern retellings of classic fairytales in the form of short stories, poems, and songs. What would a contemporary version of a Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, or Little Red Riding Hood read like if written today?

Submissions must be written in English. Open to unpublished and previously-published authors. No Harvard or Harvardwood affiliation necessary, so spread the word to all of your writerly friends and colleagues!

If you have further questions, please contact Patricia Danaher.

Final Deadline: November 1, 2018
Fee: $35*


*Harvardwood Publishing is entirely volunteer-run, and our umbrella organization, Harvardwood, is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. The submission fee goes toward the publication of the Once Upon a Fairytale anthology, including formatting, editing, cover design services, administrative overhead, etc.

Our first-ever anthology, The Seven Deadly Sins, is available for purchase in paperback and Kindle formats! Get your copy now.

Special thanks to Harvardwood Publishing director Patricia Danaher for curating and editing the anthology, and also to Zoë Morrison for copy-editing and to Susan Bin for the cover design!
