Ask the Fairies
If you write a letter to the fairies they write back to answer questions about anything from magical lore to coping with COVID-19 anxiety and even relationships. This is the first time this resource has become available to the world in the form of a regular column. Just write to [email protected] and a fairy, pixie, elf, troll, Muse, hobgoblin, gremlin or Fairy Godmother will reply. This is a FREE, unsponsored, unpaid labor of love.
