Riddle Fence calls for Fakelore!

Riddle Fence is a Newfoundland-based journal of arts and culture, published three times yearly. And as we speak, Riddle Fence editors are scouring the land for Fakelore!

Coined in 1950 by American folklorist Richard M. Dorson, the term ‘fakelore’ describes inauthentic, manufactured folklore presenting itself as genuine. The term can refer to folklore that is re-worked and modified for modern tastes. Riddle Fence invites you to send us your Fakelore finds or creations. Submissions will be judged by the Riddle Fence Editorial Board, and some of the best will be published in issue #8. Fakelore visual art format: jpeg or tiff, 300 dpi. Minimum image dimensions: 5 x 7 inches. Deadline: December 10, 2010.

Please submit by email to
or by post (and include a self-addressed stamped envelope or sufficient IRC postage in the case of submissions from outside Canada):
