Established in 2013, it will be releasing a hopefully regular e-zine for short fiction and poetry, Tigershark, in pdf format, approximately four times yearly; the issues so far are available to download for free from this site. The press may be venturing into collections and other formats at a future date.
Currently the press is open to submissions in any style or genre at the above-right email address — flash fiction, short fiction and non-fiction up to 5000 words, with those in the 1000 to 3000 words range being best placed for acceptance. Poetry of any length will be considered, and we are always on the lookout for artwork. See our guidelines for more details of themes and submission dates.
Issue five was released in September 2014, with the theme of Mysteries. Forty-seven pages of prose, poetry and artwork from KT Wagner, Bryn Fortey, Andrew Darlington, DJ Tyrer, Matt Betts, JC Hartley, Phillip A. Ellis, Denny E. Marshall, Frederick J. Mayer, Aeronwy Dafies, Celine Rose Mariotti, Katie Simpson, Julio Toro San Martin, Neil K. Henderson, Joan Leotta, Dakota-Luise Wolf and David Leverton.
