Tinfish Press: Now Seeking Submissions

Reopening after 10-year hiatus, Tinfish press is seeking experimental poetry and essays of the Pacific. They are particularly interested in work exploring rage and hope, and they especially like submissions that express a dialogue between these two themes. They value formal ingenuity and extraordinary surprise.

Tinfish Press was established in 1995, and since then they’ve produced a broad catalogue of books and chapbooks. They accept submissions year-round.

Poets may submit two to four experimental poems. Essayists may submit one piece, 500 to 1,000 words. Tinfish especially likes mediations on art, writing, love, hate, the environment, capitalism, colonialism, decolonialism, and sex. Submitting authors should include a brief bio.

Tinfish Press accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.
