Fairies, Faes, and Sprites, Oh My! (The FFS Club)

It takes all kinds! From the cute, twinkie fairies to the rough and tumble faes and even those outdoorsy types of sprites to make up the FFS. No discrimination in this club…okay, maybe some are a bit biased against humans and other paranormal creatures but can you blame them? Those in the FFS no matter how masculine or butch are always thought of as “those cute pixie dust spreading winged creatures”. Club bylines: 1) must be at least 50% fairy/fae/sprite; 2) must be willing to be open-minded; 3) no casting spells on other members of the club; and 4) as the witches say (okay, yeah, they might have gotten something right) – above all else, do no harm.

Submissions should:

All stories should have one (or both) of the main characters as either a fairy/fae/sprite

Be a minimum of 10k, maximum of 40k

Any subgenre is welcome and all prohibitive guidelines are observed

Submissions should be sent to


Any questions can be sent to Kris Jacen at
