Tethered by Letters publishes F(r)iction, a stellar collection of art and literature. With a mission to nurture the very best stories—no matter how unconventional—TBL publishes a wide array of unique and interesting literature.
Who Writes for Us?
Just this last year, we’ve published several established and emerging authors including: Isaac Marion (Warm Bodies), Claire Bidwell Smith (Rules of Inheritance), Josie Sigler (The Galaxie and other Rides), and Kelly Easton (Hiroshima Dreams).
Writing is a lonely endeavor. But fret not! We’re here to help. TBL hosts a talented group of writers, readers, and editors from all over the world.
What do our Members Do?
United by their love of lit, TBLers flood our forums, write utterly amazing group stories, use geeky pick-up lines on our Celebrity Mentors, and support each other in the endless battle to save the Blots! In short: TBLers are the coolest peeps we know!
