2020 WTP Magazine

The Woven Tale Press: a Literary and Fine Art Magazine

What makes us unique? We give equal precedence to both the written word and the visual arts.

The WTP magazine is published ten times a year. It is a true hybrid of  noteworthy writing and visual arts — at once a fine art magazine and literary journal. We regularly feature a rich and resonate roster of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and the visual arts, by both established and emerging writers and artists. Keep up with the latest: cutting-edge literary and fine art from across the world.

Between our Covers:

Enjoy an eclectic mix of the literary, painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, drawing, the innovative and the offbeat. The Woven Tale Press mission is to grow the online presence of noteworthy writers, photographers, and artists. Most contributors are credited with interactive urls back to their websites. If we discover an artist via a gallery, we will link back to the gallery’s website as well.

Mixed Media

Composition Blue copper, aluminum, modeling paste, gesso, acrylic 39’’ x 36''By Chuck Fischer

““My geometric abstract constructions break the plane of two-dimensional painting and are composed of colored, textured, and multi-layered elements made from common materials such as wood, copper, and aluminum.” — Chuck Fischer

The Surreal

Covariance and Uncertainty drawing, collage 20’’ x 30’’by Simon Berson

“I aim for a kind of balance of curiosity and puzzlement. The basic nature of the work is fun, and guaranteed fresh. Do these images depict a kind of machine, something bio-mechanical, or an alien life form/landscape?” — Simon Berson

The Source of Now

ink 22’’ x 15’’

by David Provan

“Through drawing I enjoy that almost magical process of compressing and distilling the three-dimensional world into a flat simulacrum of that world. Although I occasionally draw an object or a landscape, my real fascination lies in the device of perspective itself… how it serves as a tool that translates the world into a flat representation, as well as a format for contemplating how an individual’s specific point of view affects their overall world view.”
