The competition among submissions was as fierce as the rage of old Rumpelstiltskin himself when it came to choosing stories for this, the first issue of volume two of Enchanted Conversation: A Fairy Tale Magazine. Nearly 200 entries from around the world made the job of our editors both entertaining and extremely difficult.
The 10 stories and poems we chose and are publishing today represent a variety of interpretations of "Rumpelstiltskin" from around the world. All posses a sense of transformation and a sense of place -- of falling down the rabbit hole.
All 10 are posted below in no particular order. They are all on this page. Please take time to read them all -- they are gems! Every one of these works is worth your time.
And stay tuned. Contests are coming very soon!
PS: We're still tinkering here and have plenty to post about tomorrow, so stay tuned.
