For a detailed look at our account, programming, Literary Fiction, #LitReads campaign, how to participate please see our Guide:


The Literary Fiction Network features works and authors of contemporary literary writing. They typically are genre-blends, experimental, or can't be categorized within one genre. They may feature abstract metaphysical nuances, profound themes, philosophical insight, artistic drabble, and capture social commentary, universal dilemmas, humanity, or intimate sentiment.

Rather than mainly focusing on plot, characters or worldbuilding, literary style draws attention to the art of language, ambiguity, poetic moments and multilayered symbolism, which often allows open ended interpretation. Elements from any genres may still show up such as speculative, surreal, romance, slice of life, bildungsroman, crime, and so on.
