Fiction International is the only literary journal in the United States emphasizing formal innovation and progressive politics. It features a wide variety of fiction, nonfiction, indeterminate prose, and visuals by leading writers and artists from around the world.
We will consider submissions of narrative, anti-narrative and indeterminate texts but only accept submissions reflecting the current issue’s theme. For the Fall 2011 issue we will accept submissions on the theme About Seeing: Addressing the Visual Arts (cinema, video, painting, photography, etc).
