What


We’re Up To
Nettlesome got its start during a conversation about where to find good contemporary fiction–first off who is writing it, and second where can you find it to read it? Readers will be able to access and engage with well written, compelling stories, while writers can find support through editor feedback and connection with other writers.

We cultivate content that may prickle and provoke, but handled correctly, good stories, like the nettle, contain properties that heal and stimulate. Strong stories entertain just as an accomplished host nourishes guests with food and fascinates with conversation, to send them away refreshed and heartened. We hope that the exchange between writers and readers will encourage greater conversation, inspire more stories, and foster stronger fellowship.
