Tupelo Press discovers luminous writers, gives each author the vessel of a beautiful book, and shares their passions with as many readers as possible. Tupelo’s list speaks to the diversity of influences upon contemporary art and culture, and the Press takes a keen interest in promoting a dialogue between the written and fine arts.

In this digital milieu, Tupelo Quarterly extends and expands upon that vision, publishing work by emerging and established writers and artists of many sensibilities and styles.

In addition to a stunning poem or story on the page, we want to include work that takes full advantage of the medium. We want to honor the art as received, and to extend the scope of what a literary journal can do.

Tupelo Quarterly cultivates generous artistic community, celebrates intellectual curiosity and creative risk, and presumes abundance.

We hold the gate open, not closed.
