Edition 42: Once Upon a Time in Oz
(Fifth annual fiction edition)
Deadline for submissions: 19 July 2013
Publication date: Late October 2013
Fairy tales speak to the heart. They embody darkness and light, good and evil and use magic to convey essential truths. In Once Upon a Time in Oz, Griffith REVIEW will hold up an enchanted mirror to explore the role of fairy and folk tales across cultures in this country, and create new ones.
How have the European tales transported in the nineteenth century affected Australian literature? What role do the legends of the Aboriginal Dreamtime, the stories of Asia, South America, the Pacific and Africa play in the Australian imagination? Is it wise to censor traditional stories for the good of children? How do the stories change, and why? Are fairy tales really only for children?
Once Upon a Time in Oz presents new stories by renowned writers and examines through essay and memoir some of the mysteries of storytelling.
