Our story

Our team has been working hard to create quality genre magazines since our beginnings in June 2022. Since then, we've constantly looked at ways to improve our output for writers and readers alike. That culminated in a reader survey at the beginning of 2023, and the result is our new platform, Inspiring Fiction.

Most of our team work exclusively on Tangled Web Magazine. Mirk is taking baby steps forward and over time our editor-in-chief hopes to add to the fantasy fiction team.

Our team
