Editor and writer Tamara Kaye Sellman originally founded MARGIN: Exploring Modern Magical Realism ( in 1998 as a blog. However, MARGIN was launched formally in January 2000 as a free web anthology when Selman discovered a lack of quality exposures to magical realism beyond the academic sector. Her purpose in publishing MARGIN is to accessibly promote an understanding of magical realism to all readers regardless of education, and to help promote the works of contemporary magical realists who often struggle to publish because of the indefinable nature of their work. MARGIN now boasts a burgeoning readership from more than 70 countries and is one of the leading clearinghouses for information on literary magical realism.
