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.
Tips From the Editor
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 Please note that we do not publish short story collections.
We seek the grotesque, the alien made familiar, the "I don’t know what this is—but I love it."
