Editorial Focus

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. Lanternfish Press also publishes Clockwork Editions, a cabinet of curious Victorian reprints.

Tips From the Editor

We are open for submissions once per year. View active calls for submissions at www.lanternfishpress.submittable.com. View general submissions guidelines at www.lanternfishpress.com/submissions. Manuscripts sent via email will not be considered. Please note that we do not publish short story collections. We seek the grotesque, the alien made familiar, the “I don’t know what this is—but I love it.”
