The Woven Tale Press: a Magazine for Writing 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.

Read a most moving story, “The Doctor’s Daughter” by Pamela Gwyn Kripke, a journalist whose essays have been published in The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Dallas Morning News, Slate, Salon, The Huffington Post, Underwired and numerous other magazines and newspapers. Her work was submitted for a Pulitzer Prize in 2011.
Gladys Nilsson is known for her densely layered and meticulously constructed watercolors and collages. She studied painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and first came to prominence in 1966, when she joined five other recent Art Institute graduates (Jim Falconer, Art Green, Jim Nutt, Suellen Rocca, and Karl Wirsum) for the first of a series of group exhibitions called the Hairy Who. Like many of the Hairy Who artists, Nilsson employed a type of horror vacui; many of her works feel filled to the brim with winding, playful imagery. Her work often focuses on aspects of human sexuality and its inherent contradictions. In 1973, she became one of the first women to have a solo-exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
