The Fiddleback was an online arts and literature magazine that published poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, essays, culture pieces, book and music reviews, and featured interviews with artists and musicians.

Founded by Jeff Simpson in 2010, the magazine was edited by a band of poets, writers, and aesthetes from around the U.S. They published their first issue in December 2010 and closed shop three years later. By the end, they produced eighteen issues, published hundreds of poets and writers, and ran dozens of interviews with emerging artists and musicians.

In 2015, The Fiddleback site was restored with the help of Literary Orphans, and the archives reopened as part of LO’s side project, The Rookery, a digital library for online journals in danger of e-death.

Please note: The Fiddleback does not currently publish content or accept submissions. This may change in the future, but for now the magazine exits solely in archival form.
