The Sigh Press logo with title for website FINAL

Based in Tuscany, The Sigh Press publishes a quarterly online literary journal for writers of English who have spent time in the region, and readers anywhere. 

The Summer Issue 2016 is out on the 8th June. In the meantime, check out our new Ampersand interview series: in our first edition we chat to author Laura Fraser.

The Publishing Day on the 14th May, in association with Florence Writers, was a great success, not least because of our fantastic panel comprising Literary Agents Kimberley Cameron and Andrea Cirillio, Harpercollins Editor Martha Ashby and Writer & Poet Nuala O’Connor.  Check out our Facebook page for notes and photos from the day. 

For updates and news, please go to our TSP Facebook page.

Writers and visual artists are invited to submit work in response to specific themes set for each issue. The Journal seeks to publish work in four categories: Fiction & Creative Nonfiction; Poetry; Cultural Commentary & Questions; and Visual Art (not limited to English speakers). Check out our Contributors Page, where you’ll find their bios and 50-word responses to the issue themes.

Each issue is individually curated and unique. Some issues may feature a piece from each category. Certain issues may feature several works from one category and omit others. The mix will be different each time.

See our Submissions page for further details.
