Tinfish Press was founded in 1995 to publish experimental poetry from the Pacific region. We began with a thin journal that was xeroxed and stapled, and moved into chapbooks, then into full length volumes of poetry. Our designs, all by artists with ties to Hawai`i, are strikingly non-standard. We publish work that focuses on place, language issues, anti-colonialism, Buddhism, and poetic form. Above all, we seek to create alliances between writers whose work crosses national and aesthetic borders.
