Frequently asked questions



How and when did Honeysuckle Press begin?

Honeysuckle Press is a sister organization of Winter Tangerine, a literary magazine devoted to evocative poetry, prose, & visual art. In 2016, after nearly four years of publishing vivid, socially-aware work, we decided to expand and establish a fully-fledged publishing house. We aim to continue to uplift writers of color, queer writers, women writers, trans and nonbinary writers, as well as writers from other culturally distinct communities. Honeysuckle Press is our way of bring the work of our contributors to an even larger audience.
