Tin House Headquarters

Tin House is an American literary magazine and book publisher based in Portland, Oregon, and New York City. Portland publisher Win McCormack conceived the idea for Tin House magazine in the summer of 1998.[1] He enlisted Holly MacArthur as managing editor and developed the magazine with the help of two experienced New York editors, Rob Spillman and Elissa Schappell.[2]

In 2005, Tin House expanded into a book division, Tin House Books. They also run a by-admission-only summer writers' workshop held at Reed College.[3]

Tin House publishes both fiction, essays, and poetry, as well as interviews with important literary figures, a "Lost and Found" section dedicated to exceptional and generally overlooked books, "Readable Feast" food writing features, and "Literary Pilgrimages," about visits to the homes of writing greats. It is also distinguished from many other notable literary magazines by actively seeking work from previously unpublished writers to features as "New Voices."[4]

Tin House is consistently honored by major American literary awards and anthologies, particularly for its fiction. A story from the Summer 2003 issue, "Breasts" by Stuart Dybek, was featured in The Best American Short Stories for 2004,[5] and in 2006, "Window" by Deborah Eisenberg was a "juror favorite" in The O. Henry Prize Stories.[6]
