The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Upon a Once Time
Air and Nothingness Press

Theme: Fairy Tales - choose two of your favorite fairy tales, and a genre of your choice, and mash them up to make something new.
Stories may be of any genre as long as they incorporate two fairy tales. We are open to Grimdark, New Weird, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Dying Earth and genre bending/breaking.

Remember, when submitting to the 'Upon a Once Time' open call be sure to tell us what two fairy tales you are working with and what genre you have chosen. Fairy tales can be from any of our world's diverse cultures, in fact we encourage that.
A mash of a western and an asian or african faiy tale exploring the multicultural symbols unique to each story and then integrated into the genre choice but subverting it ... a tall order we know for our word count but authors are amazing and surprising in their talents.
Explore, create, take a chance and show us your fireworks.
