Tiny Donkey publishes short essays (up to 400 words in length) that explore fairy tales through scholarly, personal and cultural lenses. Tiny Donkey has a strong focus on original thought and dexterous, polished writing.

You can write Tiny Donkey essays from a lot of different angles. You might come up with an entirely new idea, or turn a class paper in to a polished micro-essay. We’re open to challenging and unique form and content, just get in touch!

Tiny Donkey is particularly interested in supporting work by people of color, trans and queer people, working class people, differently-abled people, women, and others marginalized in the literary and fairy-tale worlds. We’re also interested in publishing work by undergraduates.
