Fabula Argentea (FA for short) is Latin for “silver story” and the name is pronounced FAH-boo-la ar-GEN-tee-ah (where the “g” is hard as in “grape”).
Our editorial Staff is composed of Rick Taubold (Publisher/Editor-in-chief), Rosanne Taubold (Art Director and editorial assistant).
FA is a paying market. Our goal is to bring its readers the best writing we can find. Period. We accept a wide variety of material: genre, literary, humor, the grit of life, happy endings, sad endings, and perhaps the occasional spicy story. Check our SUBMISSIONS tab at the top of the page for further information.
The most important aspect of anything we publish is good writing and a great story to accompany it. Stories mean characters, conflict, and resolution–no personal essays, anecdotes, or diatribes. We encourage all authors to reach deep inside themselves to come up with pieces that will impress us, pieces that will have readers telling friends about, that will stay with us and not be easily forgotten. Think outside the box. Break some rules and do it up right.
Each piece of published fiction will include a note on “Why we chose to publish.” We’re copying this idea from a wonderful, no-longer-in-print literary magazine called New England Writer’s Network. NEWN included a section about why the editors chose each piece: what stood out in the piece and what made it worthy to be published. We believe that this gives authors something to brag about as well as encouraging them to continue writing excellent fiction.
