About

Tinderbox features a growing collection of authors and playwrights.

Why Tinderbox? Historically, travelers to new lands carried with them a box containing tinder, flint, and other items for starting a fire. But we like this definition best: Tinderbox–a thing that is readily ignited.

In a rapidly changing literary climate, more and more professional writers are taking creative sovereignty over their work. The future of quality publishing no longer belongs legacy houses owned by multi-national corporations, but to nimble, grass-roots independents, in touch with readers and new technologies.

At Tinderbox, we’re excited about the future of the written word! Come back and watch us grow.
