F(r)iction is a triennial collection of literature and art published by Tethered by Letters. We seek great stories, regardless of genre, style, or origin. Pairing each written work with custom, full-color illustrations, each issue highlights the best of modern storytelling—from traditional prose and poetry to sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and even comics!

If the story is great, we want to read it...even if it's about aliens, dragons, or your wooden spoon collection.
