Publisher’s Description: Tin House is a literary magazine based in Portland, Oregon and New York City. The 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 the help of two experienced New York editors, Rob Spillman and Elissa Schappell, which resulted in a magazine that contains the energies of both coasts.
Rather than simply being dedicated to either fiction or poetry, Tin House excels in both, 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 It is also distinguished from many other notable literary magazines by actively seeking work from previously unpublished writers for its "New Voices" section.
