Mapping the Impossible is an open-access student journal publishing peer-reviewed early-career research into fantasy and the fantastic. The editorial board and reviewers are composed of current students and recent graduates from institutions across the world. Our first issue, Beyond the Anglocentric, is available to read now!

We are currently open to submissions for our second issue, to be published starting in February 2023. Our general issues operate with a rolling submissions and publication model, so if you’re interested in submitting to us for a general issue, we would love to see your paper no matter when it’s ready! Our third issue, to be published in summer 2023, will be a special issue entitled ‘Fantasy Across Media,’ following the theme of GIFCon 2022. Submissions for the special issue are currently closed.

If you’d like to get involved, we are looking for reviewers and we would love to hear from you!
