After completing its ghost story collection, Gurukitty Studios is putting together a new anthology. This one, entitled “Once Upon a Time,” will have folk and fairy tales as its central theme:
“We are all familiar with the mainstream typical stories such as Sleeping Beauty, Red Riding Hood, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White and the other popular classics…. We want you to dig into lesser known or culturally relevant folk stories from various cultures from all over the world. We want folk stories from many different countries all in one book so people can see how different cultures influence the different types of storytelling. You can tell a classic if you like, but you’d better tell it in a mind-blowing way no one would ever predict or it’s not getting in this book.”
Currently there is a call for submissions. Each story must match the fairy tale theme and be 5-20 pages long. The deadline for submissions is March 30, 2012.
For more information, consult the detailed call for submissions at Gurukutty: Once Upon a Time.
