Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Tempered Runes Press is an independent publisher of poetry, prose, fiction, and visual art that is meticulously well-crafted. We believe that letters and images have power and that great stories are forged from passion and integrity. We publish compositions from writers and artists who work as blacksmiths, crafting their pieces with powerful blows and finesse. Our goal is to bring all types of creative writing and art to our readers. We want to show the value of both traditional and experimental works of poetry, prose, fiction, and visual art. To us, the greatest pieces are both beautiful and functional.

Submissions Policy
We accept submissions of poetry, fiction, mini sagas, and visual art in any genre. Our only requirement is that work does not instigate violence or encourage discrimination on the basis of race, sex, gender identity, ethnic background, age, education, religion, or health. We also limit submissions to writers and artists above the age of 18. Once we receive a submission, it goes through a first-round blind review. If it receives a thumbs up or a maybe, it moves on to round two. I conduct the round two review based on the notes left by the blind reviewer for round one. If we decline a submission, we give constructive feedback to the submitter and highlight what they did well.
