Read Fairy Tale Review's The Coral Issue for Free: Activities During Coronavirus

Read some new fairy tale and folklore related short stories, poems, and such for free!

Tweeted yesterday by Fairy Tale Review:

"Fairy tales to the rescue. The Coral Issue (2020) has just been made *free* to readers through April 30. Readers, enjoy. Huge gratitude for saying yes when we asked, @WSUPress and @JSTOR."

You can read the entire issue for free for the next six-ish weeks at

If you are unfamiliar with Fairy Tale Review:

Fairy Tale Review is an annual literary journal dedicated to publishing new fairy-tale fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. The journal seeks to expand the conversation about fairy tales among practitioners, scholars, and general readers. Contents reflect a diverse spectrum of literary artists working with fairy tales in many languages and styles

And each edition is a shout out to the work of Andrew Lang and his wife Leonora Lang and their colored fairy books. Because even if only his name was on the cover, the colored fairy books work was predominantly hers and built on his public persona as a folklorist. So both husband and wife were important to the series' production and success. I just have to add that because I am a big fan of Leonora Lang's contributions to folklore.
