We generally consider prose fiction of any genre, style, or subject. Generally, we like submissions up to 7,500 words. However, if your story is truly excellent but lands somewhere above 7,500, we'll still be excited to read it.

There is a small reading fee for general F(r)iction submissions ($5), but authors accepted will be awarded payment for their work. F(r)iction pays contributors $10 per final printed page, plus a free contributor's copy.

We strongly recommend checking out a past issue of F(r)iction before submitting to get an idea of our general publishing aesthetic. You can do this at the TBL Store.

We try very hard to respond to all submissions within two months.
