Kate's Picks: The Song of the Sea Issue

This week's pick: Song of the Sea Issue

Well, I’ve been missing in action on my picks for a couple of weeks because we’ve been working away nonstop on the June issue.

And what an issue it is! Of course it’s my pick of the week.

The “Song of the Sea” issue is a bit of an accident. I didn’t realize I was choosing lots of sea/mermaid related stories and poems until after I’d accepted them. When I realized what I’d done, I figured why not make it a sea issue? (Or maybe it was Amanda’s idea. The issue is half hers—at least!)

The result is by far the most gorgeous thing we’ve ever done. Amanda pulled out all the stops on art and layout and the result is dreamy, romantic and dazzling.

In addition to the new glorious poems and stories we have in this issue, we’ve included some “Best of EC” works, and we’ve got some great nonfiction too. I’m especially excited about Kelly Jarvis’s interview with the brilliant fairy tale scholar, Maria Tatar!

This issue is also a whopping 88 pages, so you know you’re getting your money’s worth and then some.

You can learn more about purchasing a single issue or becoming a subscriber here. You’ll be entertained and be supporting a great cause, as FTM is a nonprofit!

Yours in Enchantment,
