WHAT THE WHAT?
[PANK] will be closing its doors in the spring of 2016, publishing its online magazine through the end of 2015, one remaining print issue, and culminating with a wake at AWP 16 in Los Angeles, CA. We are immeasurably proud of our publications and have boundless gratitude for all the staff, contributors, and each and every reader who has labored alongside us over the decade. It’s been an immensely gratifying ride.
From 2006 to 2016, the nonprofit literary arts collective [PANK] Publishing – PANK Magazine & Tiny Hardcore Press – fostered access to emerging and innovative poetry and prose, publishing the brightest and most promising writers for the most adventurous readers. Up country, to the end of the road, to a far shore and the edge of things, to a place of amalgamation and unplumbed depths, a place inhabited by contradiction, quirk and startling anomaly, where the known is made and unmade, and where unimagined futures are born, [PANK].
PANK Magazine was a literary magazine publishing online and print issues. Tiny Hardcore Press is a very small publishing concern producing tiny, hardcore books that will fit well in your pocket, purse, hand, and heart.
“Publishes a raft of experimental fiction and poetry.”
New York Times Magazine
“PANK’s vision is innovative and eccentric.”
Poets & Writers Magazine
“A uniquely gritty approach.”
“Totally on the money.”
“More interested in innovation than recycling what’s already been done… bursting with tasty high-minded prose with a touch of tongue and cheek.”
