Bare Fiction promotes new writing in all forms through performance, digital representation and publication. We offer a platform for new creative writing across poetry, fiction and plays to encourage writers, whether they are unpublished and unperformed or established writers trying something new, to stretch themselves creatively. One of the ways we do this is through our new literary periodical, Bare Fiction Magazine and the launch events we run to promote the writers. An 80 page A4 publication comprising of new work in the genres of poetry, fiction and plays, including articles and reviews of writing along with interviews with practitioners. The response to our magazine has been very positive across the board, with a huge amount of support coming from writers, editors ,broadcasters and outlets: Jo Bell: "Just downloaded @BareFiction Issue 1 for £6. Substantial, good-looking" Ian McMillan: "Enjoying @BareFiction magazine: a bold idea to print plays but I think it works. Like the poems by @adamhorovitz and Sarah Hehir too."

What we do

Hello Bare Fiction and welcome to Write Out Loud. I’m really looking forward to reading some of your work. I know that you will be warmly welcomed by fellow WOL-ers on the site. If you haven’t already added a picture to your profile please try and do so. It’s good to see what our fellow poets look like.
Have a good browse around the site, there’s lots going on and if you have the time make some comments about the work of other poets please feel free. It’s the best way to get some constructive feedback about your own work too.
Any problems, please ask. There’s always someone who’ll get back to you. It’s a friendly place, so welcome once again.
