The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful


Fond, a literary journal founded January 2020, publishes writing in world Englishes and in translation — and artwork in other disciplines — whose principal interest, interpreted expansively, is food and its import.

Universal reference point for all things, food comprises excess and scarcity alike, sustains, kills. It motivates civilization; it builds industry; it decimates; it is decimation. The difference between extant and extinct. As much an act of communion as it is a political bludgeon. To that end, Fond provides critical space for its contributors to experiment in form and structure, breach subjects dread and rare, and govern part of a conversation bridging culture, period, and place.
