About

South of the Sun is an anthology of Australian Fairy Tales, produced by the Australian Fairy Tale Society in partnership with Serenity Press.

What is an Australian Fairy Tale? This is a question South of the Sun explores. We are challenging assumptions that fairy tales are for children, are European, and must contain fairies and pale, passive heroines. Through stories, flash fiction, poetry and illustrations we are producing inventive, intercultural new Australian fairy tales for young adults and older fantasy readers. 

Having run a successful crowdfund campaign where we exceeded our target early and even surpassed stretch goals, we can now confirm that our illustrated book of intercultural contemporary Australian fairy tales is now proceeding. https://www.pozible.com/project/south-of-the-sun-1
