She then also worked as an editor for Armadillo Press and Tor Books and became the creator of the 'Fairy Tales' series of novels (featuring reinterpretations of classic fairy tale themes by Jane Yolen, Steven Brust, Pamela Dean, Patricia C. Wrede, Charles de Lint, and others) and since 1986, has been working as a consulting editor in the United States and then in England.
From 1986 to 2003, Windling worked a lot with Ellen Datlow. Together, they edited 16 volumes of Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, an anthology that reached beyond the boundaries of genre fantasy to incorporate magic realism, surrealism, poetry, and other forms of magical literature. During her career, she was also the co-editor (with Midori Snyder) of The Journal of Mythic Arts from 1987 until it ceased publication in 2008.
Currently, Windling works as a freelance writer and editor and is the founder of the Endicott Studio, an organization dedicated to myth-inspired arts, which exists since 1987. As an artist, Windling specializes in work inspired by myth, folklore, and fairy tales. Her art has been exhibited across the US, as well as in the UK and France. She also sits on the board of the Mythic Imagination Institute.
In May 2016, Windling gave the fourth annual Tolkien Lecture at Pembroke College, Oxford, speaking on the topic of fantasy literature in the post-Tolkien era.
