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 and third issues. Our second issue, to be published in October 2022, will be a special issue entitled ‘Fantasy Across Media’, following the theme of this year’s GIFCon. And our third issue, to be published February 2023, will be a general issue. We operate with a rolling submissions window, and 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! Check out our submissions page for further details.

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