Printed triannually and distributed around the world, F(r)iction publishes short fiction, flash fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, in addition to a selection of graphic stories. If your writing is different, strange, or challenging, then we want to read it.
Take a risk. Break tradition.
If you love literature, you’ve probably seen just about every journal out there. Maybe you’re a devoted reader, bored with themes like adult-life paranoia and coming-of-age angst. Or maybe you’re a writer, and you’ve been writing traditional works to fit within traditional boundaries, but you can’t find a home for the more experimental work you really love. You feel like you’ve seen everything a literary journal has to offer. But you haven’t seen F(r)iction.
F(r)iction is different. The brainchild of a ragtag team of editors, artists, and writers, F(r)iction is the best of everything we’ve ever loved. F(r)iction is experimental. F(r)iction is strange. F(r)iction pokes the soft spots, touches nerves most would rather remain protected. F(r)iction is secrets and truths and most importantly—stories.
F(r)iction is weird, in every respect.
In 2015, we published original work by established authors such as Isaac Marion, Scott O’Connor, Helen Phillips, as well as amazing graphic features, including the Eiser-nominated comic, Nimona. These acclaimed authors pave the way for the emerging authors published in each issue, many of them seeing their work in print for the first time.
We publish F(r)iction because we don’t want to see great literature die.
So join us, and keep the pulse of creativity alive.
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING:
F(r)iction is fun, young and colourful. They do not shy away from the experimental or strange. In fact, they want to “publish weird.”
—David Morgan O’Connor, The Review Review
Not only is this richly-textured magazine a beauty to behold, it’s also a joy to read from the first vibrant page to the last.
