On this submission page we advertise when TBL's group writing project is running, release our internship application forms, and open up applications for other opportunities. 

Dually Noted is Tethered by Letters' group writing project. Each submission should attempt to match the previous section of the story, in both style and content. Our editors will choose the best 500-word submission every week and add it to the current story. Stories whose quality meets TBL's high quality standard may be published in F(r)iction Series, our triannual print publication.


Dually Noted will take submissions through November 23. The theme of this project is: “For the last time, dear, I told youtrees can't move.”

Each 500-word section should be a complete story arc. Writers are free to submit stories of any genre, subject, or style (even poetry is welcome!), but submissions should adhere to the theme. Feel free to use your imagination and come up with interesting ways to incorporate this idea. Submissions are due Fridays at midnight PST. We’ll post the best submissions each Monday!
