The Sigh Press logo with title for website FINAL

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

The Autumn Issue 2016 is out now. Check out our latest Ampersand interview series with Author & Performance Artist Lee Foust. Our next interview will be with Irish author Paula McGrath, which will be out in October. You can see contributor readings in the form of podcasts on our Quotes 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 and other issues may feature several works from one category and omit others.
