Tin House is Accepting Unsolicited Submissions Until 31 March

“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 March Tin House will be accepting submissions for its first two issues of 2019:

  • Summer – No theme (“just some quality fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to cool off with in the shade”)
  • Fall – Theme TBA

The editors consider every submission for all upcoming issues regardless of theme. 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 to Tin House opened on 1 March and close on Saturday 31 March. For further details visit the Tin House Submittable Page.
