Contemporary fiction is a generous term, allowing for a breadth of approaches towards plot, voice and theme. Its unifying thread is that of the modern age, often taken as post-war. Think of it as occupying the space between historical fiction and futuristic fantasy, but with borders that flex and expand.

Here at BritFic, you’ll find some of the best voices in British and Irish contemporary fiction. You can listen in on discussions, join in debates, and have a look behind the scenes of our writing. We love talking to book groups, so do feel free to ask questions, or see which of us live near enough for a visit.

Most of all, enjoy the books, because that’s what we’re about, after all!
