What is an Australian Fairy Tale? This is a question South of the Sun explores. We are challenging assumptions that fairy tales are for children, are European, and must contain fairies and pale, passive heroines. Through stories, flash fiction, poetry and illustrations we are producing inventive, intercultural new Australian fairy tales for young adults and older fantasy readers.

We are also soliciting work from new and emerging writers and illustrators, with submissions from writers closing on 13 December and from illustrators early next year. We plan to pay all contributors. If you are interested in participating, please see further details on the anthology website:
