Thank you for your interest in submitting to F(r)iction.
As part of our mission to publish experimental, nontraditional, and boundary-pushing literature, F(r)iction
includes graphic stories or comics in every issue. We are looking for complete stories, but we are willing to consider excerpts from longer graphic works if they contain a more-or-less complete story arc. Submissions may be up to 35 printed pages and may be either color or black-and-white.
Please include BOTH author and artist information in your cover letter, if applicable. PDF files are preferred. Contact us with any questions.
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 prefer to read all our submissions blind. Please include your name and contact information in your cover letter only and remove any identifying information from the submitted manuscript itself.
We accept simultaneous submissions with the stipulation that you withdraw upon acceptance elsewhere. Though you may submit multiple manuscripts for consideration at once, please do so separately. All submissions will be considered for publication.
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 try very hard to respond to all submissions within two months.
