Fabula Bound is a creative writing registered student organization at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, dedicated to creating a supportive and innovative community for writers and provide a niche platform for their voice. It is the hope of Fabula Bound to nourish the creative writing craft of its members, as well as provide them with the knowledge and skills necessary to edit and publish a literary magazine. Most importantly, we hope to highlight the diverse talent of the University of Arkansas’ writers in our publication, the fiddler.
Issues of the fiddler will be published biannually during the spring and fall semesters. Issue 3 is out now! Print copies can be found at the research desk in Mullins Library, and online copies can be found in our Archive. If you are interested in printed back issues of the magazine, please email us.
Meetings for the Spring 2017 semester will be held every Tuesday at 5:30pm in Mullins Library room 302B. They will include discussion of the magazine, presentations by the officers, and guest speakers.
We are currently accepting applications for Genre Editors and Readers. For information on how to apply, go to the Applications tab under Submissions.
