Rose Red Review is published online four times a year, in homage to each season. In fairy tales, the future is unknown, often summarized by the vague phrase “happily ever after,” but each character is influenced by his or her past, and we, like the characters, live in the moment as we read their story. Rose Red Review seeks to publish art, photography, fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry that best reflects the magic in the everyday—work that honors the past, the moment, and the uncertain future. 

Rose Red Review loves magical realism and pieces that possess a fairy tale element. If you would like to submit spoken word, please submit it as poetry, with a note containing a link to an audio or video file. (Unfortunately, Rose Red Review cannot host your audio or video files. SoundCloud is an excellent free option.) You may send prose and poetry with elements of fantasy and science fiction. Horror and dystopian work—in any medium—is welcome, provided it is compelling. Death is mysterious; as such, it represents the darker magic in the everyday. The editor of Rose Red Review particularly enjoys the broad theme of death and rebirth.

Please submit 4-6 pieces of original, unpublished artwork in .jpg, .gif, or .png format.
