We'll be revealing our summer cover soon -- think Emily Soto, Fiori Couture, a big shell crown ... In the mean time, we're excited to let you know that the issue will feature an original short story from the very wonderful Sarah Addison Allen, who writes so deliciously about enchantment. And Charles Vess is doing a custom illustration for the piece as we speak (he did art for an Alice Hoffman story we published in the special Mermaids issue and art for the Joanne Harris story we published this Spring)! We can't wait to see what you think!
In the mean time, check out our gorgeous new Terrariums section. Each terrarium is lovingly and delicately handmade by The Slug and The Squirrel. And they can last for years, thriving in their perfect miniature ecosystems. See what you think. And check back -- we're adding new ones all the time!
Faerie Magazine has an exciting new team, including creative director Anna Vorgul and editor-in-chief Carolyn Turgeon, so expect new great things in the issues to come. Anna's responsible for all the beautiful design you see on our pages, while Carolyn is writing and bringing in great new content (she's also the author of several fairy tale novels). Both of them join founder and publisher Kim Cross in bringing more and more beauty and inspiration into your life! Let us know how we're doing! And if you have a product you think we should sell, a piece you think we should publish, or anything else you'd like to share ... drop us a line at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com!
We profile the female knight Virginia Hankins in our spring issue. When asked what advice she has for others looking to make their dreams come true, she said: “Remember that no one is born already being who they are. Even people who are really famous for doing something didn’t start out knowing about that thing.”
Learn all about Virginia in our spring issue!
