About Us

What we do

Fox Paw Literary publishes fresh new writing on our blog. We welcome submissions of fiction, nonfiction, creative nonfiction and poetry.

We want to read your writing!

As writers ourselves, we know the feeling of waiting months to learn the fate of a story! While we can’t publish every submission, we do promise to read each one.

Congratulations to
