The guiding principle of Fiction has always been to go to terra incognita in the writing of the imagination, and to ask that modern fiction set itself serious questions, interrogating the nature of the real and the fantastic. It represents no particular school of fiction, except the innovative. Fiction has traditionally attempted to make accessible the inaccessible, to bring the experimental to a broader audience. As a result of its willingness to publish the difficult, experimental and unusual, Fiction has a unique reputation in the U.S. and abroad as a journal of future directions. We pride ourselves on publishing established writers along with new, emerging voices.
