Enchanted Conversations seeks Baba Yaga retellings

Illustration of Baba Yaga flying in a mortar
Illustration of Baba Yaga by Ivan Bilibin (1876–1942), first published in 1900. Work is in the public domain.

Kate Wolford of Enchanted Conversation: A Fairy Tale Magazine is compiling an anthology of stories based on Baba Yaga.

Baba Who?

Baba Yaga, a witch from Slavic folklore, lives in a house with chicken feet, flies around in a mortar while holding a pestle, and may or may not be a cannibal.

Wolford is looking for stories of 7,500 to 20,000 words and will pay $50 per story. The submission period is January 1 to March 1, which means you can start writing now, but don’t email her the story until the new year.

Find more submission details, plus lots of resources for learning more about Baba Yaga (free ebooks!) at Dale Cameron Lowry’s blog for writers:
