building a publishing meritocracy
Prolitfic is a team of creative writers who've struggled to find our place. We saw traditional publishers favor popular authors. We found it hard to get noticed in a sea of self-publishing. We thought many online fiction websites didn't provide detailed feedback through active communities. So, we created Prolitfic from a thought experiment in a college classroom.

Discover fiction you'd love to read.

Find your literary matches! Reader recommendations are coming soon. And like YouTube’s “Watch Later,” you’ll have your own Bookshelf for those titles and authors you want to save for later.

Become part of authors' journeys.

Follow authors as they grow from your feedback. Rate others’ reviews to surface helpful comments and curate quality pieces by encouraging revisions. Advance from Spark (level 1) through Luminary (level 5) and have your voice heard.

Gain exposure in the literary community.

Publishing and critiquing work among talented writers earns you credibility as a literary citizen, regardless of whether you’re seeking publication. Top writers and reviewers interact with our star literary partners (see below.)

Improve as a writer and/or reader.

Our feedback analytics capture data on your trading audience, such as common trends in reviews. Use insights to refine your writing and promotion strategies.

Updates.

We have officially soft launched and are working to build our community! We have a Facebook fiction writing resources group (external submission/award opportunities, master lists, monthly competitions, author/publisher interviews, beta testing opportunities, etc.) We send out monthly newsletter updates with what we've been up to, so sign up to be in the know.
If you're interested in working with us, spreading the word, or have any questions, contact us at [email protected]!

Partners.

We partner with publishing professionals. Authors include, but are not limited to, Pushcart nominee Claire Rudy Foster, NYT bestselling author Kathleen Baldwin, and recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship J. Kates. We also work with literary magazines like After the Pause, Apricity Magazine, and Alexandria Quarterly; presses like Dzanc Books and Black Rose Writing; as well as writing sites like NewPages and many more!
