Conceptual Fiction -- Submissions

We have come to know conceptual writing largely through the world of conceptual art and poetry. But what about conceptual fiction? Or narrative conception? What new forms lay in store for us? Beyond new narrative, post modern narratives, even Oulipo fictions, there are new forms waiting to be discovered. What makes a piece of fiction conceptual? Ideas over emotions? Scaffolding? Constraint? Better yet, what makes it successful? Readable even. Admirable, better still.

Send us your best conceptual work. Excerpts are fine. Statements are great. 4k max. January 15th.
