F(r)iction is the imprint of the international literacy nonprofit Brink Literacy Project. At the heart of our mission to increase literacy rates and engagement with storytelling, F(r)iction draws together the best works from our education programs and submissions.

At F(r)iction, we embrace the new, the weird, and the unconventional.

We believe that great publishing should push the boundaries of literary convention and advocate for emerging voices. Whether it’s traditional literary fiction or genre-bending sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, we look for stories, poetry, and nonfiction that move us to think in new ways and challenge our assumptions about the world. 

Take a risk. Break with tradition.

Pick up F(r)iction.

Work for Us

If you’ve ever met one of our wonderful F(r)iction staffers, you’ll quickly learn that almost every one of them was once an intern in our Publishing Internship Program.

This program is run by our parent nonprofit organization, Brink Literacy Project. While our publishing internships are a great way to get a crash course in the literary industry, they can often provide a path to what can become a long and rewarding professional relationship. Please check the Brink internship page for more information.

Public Resolutions on Diversity and Inclusion

We are always actively working to address issues of diversity and inclusion in our business practices. To this end, we are currently developing:

  • An accessibility review of frictionlit.org and brinklit.org, our social media practices, and our digital issues of F(r)iction
  • An invitation to writers to optionally self-identify their diverse background through Submittable 
  • Increased financial accessibility to F(r)iction by reducing our submission fees—we cut them in half in September 2019, and we’re working to do more
