Remapping Wonderland: Classic Fairytales Retold by People of Color



Remapping Wonderland: Classic Fairytales Retold by People of Color: We believe it is important for readers to see themselves reflected on the page. After truly realizing how few characters in classic fairytales are people of color, we wanted to make an anthology of fairytales where readers of color could see themselves on the pages. This anthology features retellings and rewritings of classic fairytales that feature people of color or different ethnic or cultural backgrounds (non-white) as the characters and that are written by people of color or different ethnic or cultural backgrounds (non-white). A percentage of the proceeds from the book will go to Room to Read.

OCT 26 UPDATE: Editing for this anthology has begun. Authors received a Submittable message today indicating instructions for the initial editing process. Please turn in beginning materials by Monday, November 2, 2020.

We have accepted 30 pieces for this collection. There is a $200 payment budget for the anthology, and all authors published in the collection receive an even division of that amount, after publication, in an opt-in system (which you will choose at payment time), along with a digital copy of the completed anthology in all formats, and an author-discount price for print versions (without obligation to purchase anything). We do not give out complimentary print editions. Release date will be late NOV or early DEC, and books will ship in time for xmas.
