A method and apparatus for making aromatic heterocyclic polymeric fibers having enhanced compressive strength are disclosed. Individual polymeric fibers, while being made according to otherwise conventional methods, are full twisted as they are drawn from a spinnerette hole so that their internal fibrils and microfibrils become entangled. The twisting is performed before coagulation of the fibers. The entangled fibrils and microfibrils are believed to provide mutual support to adjacent fibrils/microfibrils to resist buckling under compression.
