We received multiple entries for our first writing competition, Best New Fairy Tale here at The entries represented a variety of categories and included retellings, fables, poetry, horror, humor and many other genres. To make our selection, the editors of read all of the submitted stories, then narrowed the list down to the stories they’d like to read again or the ones that felt most like a fairy tale. From there we focus-tested the stories on family members, as well as the editors’ children. After much deliberation, we’ve chosen our winner of the $300 Amazon gift card!

Winner of the Best New Fairy Tale

Karina Kamelia by Victoria Rivas

This fable playfully uses language to tell a good moral about the delights of life. Like Dr. Seuss and other masters of rhyme, Karina Kamelia has great sounds throughout the piece. The use of words like “bee-busy” and “flounceish” add to its charm. It was a fairy tale that the website editors and owners couldn’t get out of their head – and it was kid-approved as well!



The self-publishing side of has now been filled with a great selection of tales, and we hope to receive many more! We invite you to create a profile to save your favorite stories from the classic and user tales library!


Thank you so much to all of our participants!


A new writing competition from will arrive in the fall! Stay tuned for more details!
