Editorial Focus

The Pinch is a nationally recognized literary journal published by the University of Memphis. Our name is derived from the historic Pinch District in Memphis. By referencing one of Memphis’ first communities, we aim to reflect the heart of our city’s history and the soul of our creative approach as we publish diverse voices that speak from the periphery, as well as the center, of contemporary written and artistic expression. We publish fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and visual art, and receive submissions from both established and emerging writers from all over the world.

Tips From the Editor
