Editorial Focus

Fence has a mission to redefine the terms of accessibility by publishing challenging writing distinguished by idiosyncrasy and intelligence rather than by allegiance with camps, schools, or cliques. It is also Fence's mission to encourage writing that might otherwise have difficulty being recognized because it doesn’t answer to either the mainstream or to recognizable modes of experimentation. 

Tips From the Editor

At present Fence Books is a self-selecting publisher; manuscripts come to our attention through our contests and through editors' investigations. We hope to become open to submissions of poetry and fiction manuscripts in the near future.
