The Sigh Press is a quarterly online literary and art journal for writers of English in Tuscany, visual artists who speak any language, and readers everywhere.


TSP features well-known authors and artists and those published for the first time on TSP pages. Contributors must have a relationship with Tuscany as residents or visitors. The writing or visual art submitted must have been created, developed, or otherwise worked on while in Tuscany. However, thematically, the work can be anything. Please see this SAMPLE ISSUE (Issue 5, Summer 2015) to gain a sense of what TSP is and VISIT THE WEBSITE for all issues and other information.

Every publication features one visual artist and is curated to include fiction, poetry, and cultural commentary that can be comfortably read in one sitting.

In 2016, The Sigh Press inaugurated Ampersand, a quarterly interview series, also found on the website.

The Sigh Press was founded in 2014 by Lyall Harris and Mundy Walsh in Florence, Italy.
