At Fiction Advocate we believe reading is practice for living; it enables us to understand ourselves, each other, and the narratives that surround us.
With an emphasis on fiction, creative non-fiction, and literary criticism, our mission is to champion new voices and new techniques, to place literature in surprising new contexts, and to demonstrate the value of a fierce debate.
Our founders have worked for Little, Brown and Company, Simon & Schuster, Oxford University Press, The Rumpus, Electric Literature, and the Barack Obama administration. Our award-winning books have been recognized by The New Yorker, Bookforum, and NPR. Contributors to our web site have won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the PEN/Faulkner Award, among many other honors.
