“Tin House is an invaluable repository of fine American writing and American fiction, presented in a crisp and entertaining visual format.”
– Stephen King
The first issue of literary magazine Tin House was published in 1999. Based in Portland, Oregon, Tin House publishes fiction, essays, and poetry, and its contributors have frequently been recognised by major American literary awards and anthologies including the Best American Short Stories and the O. Henry Prize.
Throughout September Tin House will be accepting submissions for its first three issues of 2017:
- Spring – Theme: Rehab, to be published 1 March 2017
- Summer – Open, non-themed, to be published 1 June 2017
- Fall – Theme: True Crime, to be published 1 September 2017
Writers are asked to submit only one story or essay (10,000-word limit), or up to five poems at a time. Submissions are welcomed from emerging writers, as well as more established ones. The editors particular seek work that is “new and fresh, unlike what [they’ve] read and published before.”
Submissions open on 1 September and close on 30 September. For further details visit the Tin House website.
