Lanternfish Press, founded in Philadelphia in 2013, publishes literature of the rare and strange: fiction that crosses the boundary between literary and speculative; real or imagined tales of characters at the margins of history; essays rooted in a strong sense of place; a cabinet of curious Victorian reprints. We seek the grotesque, the alien made familiar, the "I don’t know what this is—but I love it."

We are open for submissions twice a year, in the spring and fall. View active calls for submissions at lanternfishpress.submittable.com. View general submissions guidelines at lanternfishpress.com/submissions. Manuscripts sent via email will not be considered. Please note that we do not publish short story collections.

Jayinee Basu, Andrew Katz, Carmen Maria Machado, Vikram Paralkar, Anca Szilagyi

The Museum of Americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, photography, music, and artwork that revives or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana. It is published purely out of fascination with the big, weird, wildly contradictory collage that is our nation’s cultural history. Issues appear three times a year, in the winter, summer, and fall.

We seek work that engages or repurposes America's complex cultural history—original & unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book/chapbook reviews, interviews, music, photography, & art. Give us fiction that dramatizes old folk songs or steals their characters—give us love poetry with language cribbed from The Federalist Papers. Recent features: fiction on the 2008 financial crisis via Bartleby the Scrivener; essay on the family legacy of tomato-growing, and a personal essay on Annie Ross and "Twisted."

Emma Komlos-Hrobsky

Hello! I'm Emma, a writer, illustrator, and editor who tells stories at the intersection of the human and the fantastic. My writing has appeared in Tin HouseGuernica, Hunger Mountain, Conjunctions, Book Forum, and the Story Collider, and often combines word and image to create narrative through maps, mail art, comics, and forms beyond category. I have particular interest in the ways the ideas of science can provide new means of relating human experience and am at work on a novel about particle physics, family, and the Alps.

An alumni of Wesleyan, I earned my MFA in fiction at the New School. For nine years, I served as an editor at Tin House, most recently as a senior editor for its magazine and associate editor for its books division. I've also taught writing as a professor at the New School and as guest faculty at Fairleigh Dickinson, Colgate, UConn, Writers @ Work, NYU, the Tin House Craft Intensives, and other universities and festivals. I currently serve as associate editor at Poets & Writers magazine.
