Tin House

Tin House

"Tin House" is an American literary magazine and book publisher based in Portland, Oregon and New York City. The "Tin House" journal was conceived in the summer of 1998 by Portland publisher Win McCormack. He envisioned a journal that would be graphically appealing and free of the stale substance found in many contemporary journals. With this in mind, he enlisted Holly MacArthur as managing editor, along with the help of two experienced New York editors, Rob Spillman and Elissa Schappell. [McGrath, Charles. [http://www.nytimes.com/2005/02/06/weekinreview/06mcgr.html?scp=14&sq=%22Tin%20House%22&st=cse "Does the Paris Review Get a Second Act?"] "New York Times". (February 6, 2005).]

In 2005, "Tin House" expanded into a book division, Tin House Books. They also run a by-admission-only summer writers' workshop held at Reed College. [Greenfield, Beth. [http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/04/travel/escapes/04Ahead.html?scp=3&sq=%22Tin%20House%22&st=cse "Where Words Go to Work and Play".] "New York Times". (May 4, 2007).]

"Tin House" magazine

"Tin House" publishes both fiction and poetry, and it also publishes interviews with important literary figures, a "Lost and Found" section dedicated to exceptional public domain and generally overlooked material, and drink recipes. It is also distinguished from many other notable literary magazines by actively seeking work from previously unpublished writers for its "New Voices" section. [Cotts, Cynthia. [http://www.villagevoice.com/1999-06-22/news/tin-meisters/ "Tin Meisters."] "The Village Voice." ]

A story from the Summer 2003 issue, "Breasts" by Stuart Dybek, was featured in "The Best American Short Stories" for 2004, [Moore, Lorrie ed. "The Best American Short Stories 2004." (Houghton Mifflin, 2004) http://www.amazon.com/Best-American-Short-Stories-2004/dp/0618197354] and in 2006, "Window" by Deborah Eisenberg was a "juror favorite" in "The O. Henry Prize Stories".
