Best Villain Fairy Tale Competition

Enter the villain fairy tale writing competition at and win great prizes!



Are you tired of only reading about the “good guys”? Well, here is your chance to turn the spotlight on the villains of fairy tales and folk tales.

Fairytalez wants to hear the other side of the story, the villains behind a so-called “happily ever after”! After all, as they say, even the villain is the hero in their own story. Let’s hear it for the “bad” guys! You may either write a new fairy tale or folk tale with a new original villain character or take one of the classics and write the untold story from the villain’s point of view.

What if Snow White got the evil queen all wrong? Were the “wicked” stepsisters in Cinderella really all that bad, or was Cinderella just obnoxious? Were the bears menaced by Goldilocks or was it the other way around? Join the dark side – and embrace your inner villain/villainess within you!

This writing competition ran from November 22, 2017 to January 3, 2018. The winner was The Lone Wolf by Antonia Tomaszewski, a fresh take on the classic tale The Little Pigs, giving readers a look at the why behind all of that “huffing and puffing,” complete with personalities for each Pig. The runners-up were the following stories:

The Three Starving Bears
Poisoned Fruit is a Terrible Way to Die
Tick Tock Goes the Croc
The First Case: Rapunzel
