We are delighted to introduce Corvid Queen, a new journal of feminist fairy talesĀ from Sword & Kettle Press.

In this journal, feminist fairy tales reexamine pretty princesses and distressed damsels, spiteful stepmothers and wicked witches. They repurpose the ideas and imagery of traditional fairy tales in meaningful ways. They responsibly represent a wide range of cultures and identities, and they embrace complexity.

Most importantly, whether they are original stories or retellings of classics, whether they happen in real or fictional lands, whether they take place in historical eras or our modern time, they show us how to fight the dragons that wander our wild world. (After all, fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.)

Join us at Corvid Queen. Seize the shiny bits of old tales and forge them into fierce and weird and beautiful new things. Listen for our little chirps. Wander in the thickets and tangles of words.

We are so excited to share Corvid Queen with you.
