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.

For the next six weeks Tin House is accepting submissions for its first three issues of 2019:

  • Summer 2019 and Winter 2019  – Open, non-themed
  • Fall 2019 – The Horror, from the mundane frights of everyday life to the truly macabre, if it makes your hair stand on end, Tin House want to hear about it

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 opened on 1 September and will close on Monday 15 October 2018. For further details visit the Tin House Submittable Page.
