Tahoma Literary Review

Joseph Ponepinto

Tahoma Literary Review is a literary journal published three times a year in both print and e-reader formats. We are based in the Pacific Northwest, but we are international in scope. We at Tahoma Literary Review are committed to producing a literary journal from the professional writer's perspective; we feel that writers deserve compensation for the weeks or months it takes to compose a publishable poem or story. A major goal of Tahoma Literary Review is to show that writers and publishers can support each other not only artistically, but also financially. We believe in a collaborative publication model. Literary journals that pay their contributors are rare; most journals offer only exposure, a somewhat questionable concept in a landscape that is crowded with writers, but sadly limited by lack of recognition in mainstream culture. A substantial number of journals now hold contests, with entry fees typically in the $15 to $30 range-usually with one winner, and maybe a few finalist prizes-instead of paying all contributors. Our model attempts to find a middle ground that is more equitable. TLR offers both professional payment and exposure to our contributors by using a substantial portion of our total income to support our authors.
