How to submit cartoons and comics for the Review?
The majority of artwork in the Review is commissioned specifically at the time of production. Submitting to the website is a good way to introduce yourself, we love meeting new artists. If your artwork is published in The Feathertale Review it must be 300dpi, CMYK and JPEG or TIFF file formats.
While we prefer that all of your submissions be made online, you may also send us your stuff by snail mail to:
PO Box 5023,

Please include your name, telephone number, email and home addresses in your package. If you wish your work to be returned, please include with your submission a self addressed stamped envelope in Canadian return postage or International Reply Coupons.
We will try to respond to everyone’s submissions quickly.
