Fairy Tales and Folklore


Fairy tales traditional stories and are a passion of mine, so I was delighted to discover a website which is dedicated to ...'fairy tales, folklore, and everything in between.' The link is http://www.les-bonnes-fees.com/ and the site is well worth a visit. The second issue of their free e-zine has just been published and contains poetry, stories, non-fiction and artwork of exceptional quality. The editors are looking for submissions of flash and longer length fiction up to 3000 words. Both new, modern tales as well as retellings of traditional tales are welcome. Also needed are poems, book and movie reviews and commentaries. Excellent guidelines are provided and payment is offered. See you in fairytale cyberspace!

Writing fairytales to me is like writing poetry. I so envy those that can and I bet you are pretty great at it.

Glad to see you back and posting again.

Heidi, I do have favourites for younger school children. I'll do a blog on these next week and follow up with some favourite authors for this age group too.
Thanks for the recommendation, cereal killer, I'll check out Alvin Schwartz books. They sound right up my street. Have you read my Ghost Twin Tales?

Dorothy,

I loved fairytales when I was a child and loved reading them to my children. Are you going to be writing something for them? If so, let me know where and when.

Take care...

Hi Dorothy,

My website is not exactly for kids or for that matter for stories of that sort, but then there are quite a few I have of late posted there. I hope they will be enjoyable. More than that I should not brag.

Thanks.

I don't believe in fairy tales anymore. I used to, before the summer, but now I've realised that nobody has an oven big enough to fit a person in and that you must come from an extremely ugly family to mistake a wolf for your grandmother.

Plus, Jack and the Beanstalk just teaches children it's alright to murder and commit acts of ecological vandalism.
