Fault Zone Archives


Fault Zone is an anthology series edited by the SF/Peninsula Branch of California Writers. Each edition features stories, creative nonfiction, and poems by branch members. In addition, non-members may enter a contest to win cash and a publication spot in the next Fault Zone.

The series takes its name from the restless geology of the San Francisco Bay area. Fault Zone isn’t only about earthquakes. It’s about personal faults, shortcomings, and the foibles of being human. Outrageously edgy, deadly serious, bitingly funny—Fault Zone has it all.
