Three weeks ago we published the Longlist for the 2019 Tarpaulin Sky Book Awards. Today we are delighted to announce the Shortlist. Not content with mere lists, however, we are also featuring excerpts from shortlisted manuscripts...
Our sincere thanks to novelist Wendy J. Fox for including Steven Dunn's water & power (TS 2018) among her BuzzFeed showcase of "books that prove indie presses deserve your attention."
Foothills Productions releases The Usual Route, a short film based on Steven Dunn's novel Potted Meat, published by Tarpaulin Sky Press.
We are very pleased to announce that Piper J. Daniels’s debut essay collection, Ladies Lazarus, published by Tarpaulin Sky Press, has been chosen as a finalist for a 2019 Lambda Literary Award.
We are unsurprised, but nonetheless delighted, to learn that Steven Dunn's second novel with Tarpaulin Sky Press, water & power, is currently a Fiction Bestseller at Small Press Distribution.
"Ladies Lazarus is an unapologetic work, so bitch and bad-ass, in the ways it uses beauty as a creative principle and transgressive force. It is the beauty that allows us to transform our shames into something usable...." -- Arisa White, VIDA
We are thrilled to announce that Jennifer S. Cheng (Moon: Letters, Maps, Poems) has been awarded a $25,000 Creative Writing Fellowship in Poetry, from the National Endowment of the Arts. We'd like to congratulate all the other winners as well -- with a special nod to TS Magazine contributor Kiki Petrosino!
Our thanks to Julie Marie Wade at The Rumpus for her fascinating trans-genre engagement with Jennifer S. Cheng's Moon: Letters, Maps, Poems (TS 2018).
