Meet the FAE Team
“Welcome home to the faerie fold of the ancient Celtic faerie Lands”
FAE was founded by Karen Kay in the winter of 2007. The vision behind the faery-sized publication is to take faeries and a faery lifestyle out into the world, so that people can learn more about the ways of the fae. The faeries are the guardians of the land, so they have a natural affinity with their environment, and many humans feel the same way, this is where the lines blur between the faery realms and the human realms. Many of the Fairy tales and legends originate from the British Isles and so it seemed only natural for a dedicated magazine based in the UK.
In each issue you will find folklore, fashion, art, films, meditations, tutorials, a diary of events, the FAE Marketplace, and much more, plus more exclusives than you can shake a faery wand at! The magazine is created, printed and published in the UK in the Celtic land of magical Cornwall. FAE is also FSC accredited, which means we only use paper from sustainable and traceable resources because, like the faeries, FAE cares about the environment deeply.
Editor in Chief and Founder, Karen Kay is bringing into being a long held dream, a magazine dedicated to faeries and all things fae. Karen is the Managing Director of Pixie Publishing Ltd and holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Broadcast Journalism, including Media Law.
