About & Past Issues

Since 2007, Enchanted Conversation: A Fairy Tale Magazine, has offered fairy tale lovers a space to publish their own tales, read the classics again, and enjoy classic fairy tale art.

It’s a site for fairy tale lovers, creators, and dreamers.

If you love entering the imaginative world of Charles Perrault, The Brothers Grimm, and Hans Christian Andersen, this is your place.

If you love reimagining classic fairy tales and putting the results into stories, this is your place.

If you want to write and read all-new fairy tales, this is your place.

If you want reader-friendly analysis of fairy tales, this is your place.

If you love Golden Age of Illustration art, this is your place.

Enchanted Conversation was started soon after I began teaching the analysis of fairy tale to college students—and initially it was a site called Diamonds and Toads. Though it was supposed to be a site for students, I ran a writing contest one summer and out of that, EC was born.

And me? I’m a fairy tale lover since the late 1960s, when I first read an Oz book (there are many). I was immediately hooked, and nowadays, I try to be something of a fairy godmother to 21st century fairy tale lovers. I'm also the founder, editor and publisher of EC.

When I’m not immersed in the world of fairy tales, I’m a wife, mother, grandmother, gardener and music lover. I’m also a certified meditation teacher.

I hope you’ll come back often.
