How do “non-traditional” writers work with and against and slantwise to tradition? How can a collective publishing model encourage irreconcilable aesthetics, communal singularities, multi-directional lineages (vertical, horizontal), innovation, and affinity?  Panelists will present a collective response (speculative, critical, creative, necessarily non-exhaustive) to questions concerning the future of fiction. The panel will conclude with a reading celebrating FC2’s 40 years of multifarious fiction experiments.
