We are a group of writers who enjoy imaginative, perhaps even offbeat, fiction. Our goal is to write well--or at least better--but with the freedom to make mistakes. We are not here to necessarily produce polished, publishable fiction, but to rather to carve out a space where writers can experiment and have fun in a relaxed and supportive environment.

Speculative fiction--which includes science fiction, supernatural horror, steampunk, dystopian fiction, magical realism, fantastic allegory, and fantasy genres--allows writers of fiction an opportunity to envision worlds where social, technological, moral, and scientific realities are radically reimagined.

We tend to be more interested in the literary possibilities of speculative fiction than the minutiae of any particular genre.

We're 413 Writers
