› South of the Sun: Australian Fairy Tales02/Dec/2019
Hi Community Music elves,
Our anthology, "SOUTH OF THE SUN - AUSTRALIAN FAIRY TALES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY", is calling for entries until 13th December at https://australianfairytales.com/. These include poems and song lyrics!
For YA + adults, rated G, the book features contributions by acclaimed guests, with lush illustrations and intercultural inventiveness. We are challenging stereotypes (from Eurocentricity to passive femininity), and already our contributors include Australians hailing from diverse backgrounds.
We're running a crowdfunding campaign https://www.pozible.com/project/south-of-the-sun-1 to top up the Australian Fairy Tale Society's seed funding and assistance of our publisher, Serenity Press. More resources are below this cover pic.
