Publisher's description: Coal Hill publishes an online, multi-genre literary journal in February, June, and November of each year. Each issue features eight-ten poets, four-five prose writers, and two in-depth book reviews. At least 30% of the journal is comprised of Pittsburgh writers (Our definition of Pittsburgh writer is simply that you live or have spent a significant time in the city, though the pieces featured are not just Pittsburgh themed.)
As the online imprint of Autumn House Press, Coal Hill strives to further the press’s mission of publishing and promoting the work of excellent contemporary writers who have a following among readers, but whose work has been overlooked by commercial publishers. We seek to support and publish a wide range of diverse voices, as well as illuminate the talent of Pittsburgh writers. Our goal is to support and connect writers and allow their work to reach new audiences through the immediacy of online publishing.
