I’d like to congratulate the authors in the upcoming special issue of Voices in Italia Americana (VIA) dedicated to new Italian and Italian-American folktales. These writers have dared to experiment with the folktale form, and I look forward to sharing their stories!

Deborah Starewich has designed a beautiful cover for the upcoming special edition of Voices in Italian Americana (VIA). The issue is dedicated to new Italian American folktales. I’ve already read some great stories for the issue. Submissions are open until June 1 (see writers’ guidelines here). The cover is a stunning piece of art by the Italian painter Alessandro Andreuccetti.
My collaboration with Voices in Italian Americana (VIA) on a special issue dedicated to modern-day Italian American folktales is in full swing. For more details, check out my recent blog post on The New Italian American Folktales Project page.
