Tethered by Letters is pleased to announce the F(r)iction Winter Literary Competition.

There are four submission categories: 1) creative nonfiction ranging from 1,000 to 7,500 words, 2) short stories of any genre ranging from 1,000 to 7,500 words, 3) flash fiction with a word limit of 750 words, and 4) poetry no longer than three pages.

Winners of the contest will be published in a future issue of F(r)iction alongside stunning original artwork from TBL’s talented team of artists. F(r)iction is dedicated to publishing the best writing of all kinds, and we encourage submissions that push boundaries and take risks in genre, plot, and style.

Simon Tolkien, renowned author and grandson of THE J.R.R., will be judging short story submissions. Bryn Greenwood, author of the gorgeous debut All the Ugly and Wonderful Things (which won second place in the Goodreads Choice Awards for fiction), will select the winning flash fiction. Linda Pastan, legendary American poet, is our poetry judge. And Sarah Hepola—New York Times bestselling author of the memoir Blackout—will be judging TBL’s first ever nonfiction contest!
