Five Enchanted Roses
a collection of “Beauty and the Beast” stories
The challenge is to write a retelling of the beloved fairy tale in any genre or setting you like. Make certain your story is recognizably “Beauty and the Beast,” but have fun with it as well. Make it yours!
Rooglewood Press will be selecting five winners to be published in the Five Enchanted Roses collection, which will be packaged up with the gorgeous cover you see here. Perhaps your name will be one of the five displayed on this cover?
All the contest rules and information (how to enter, story details, deadline etc.) may be found on the Rooglewood Press website. Just click HERE and you will go right to the page.
Rooglewood Press’s first collection, Five Glass Slippers, is available for pre-order now and will be released on June 14. Do grab yourself a copy and see what these talented writers have done with the timeless “Cinderella” tale!
You can tell others about this writing opportunity by sharing the blog button on your blog or even posting it on Facebook or Twitter. Just be sure to include the link to the rules page!
I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this cover image, which was created by the ever-brilliant Julia Popova, or "ForestGirl." Be sure to look up her website and like her on Facebook.
So what do you think, dear readers and writers? Have you been brainstorming fairy tale retelling ideas already? Did you guess (or at least suspect) I would be picking Beauty and the Beast, which is possibly the most well-loved fairy tale of all time? I know it's one of my personal favorites, and I can hardly wait to see what stories all of you invent. I was completely amazed by the submissions sent in for Five Glass Slippers, and I anticipate that this year will be even more fantastic.
If you have any questions not covered in the clarifications section of the rules page, feel free to ask them below. I am happy to further clarify things for you.
And I'll be watching for your submission forms and looking forward to reading your tales!
