What’s Tweed’s?

Tweed’s is a boutique magazine of literature & art that is published twice a year and sold directly from our online shop and at Barnes & Noble and select independent bookstores. Separate from the print magazine, the Tweed’s Book Blog features book reviews, interviews, essays, and fiction.

The title of the magazine is an allusion to Boss Tweed, a Civil War era New York City politician who is recognized as a symbol of American greed and corruption. We chose the name Tweed’s in order to comment on the way in which our society has been completely corrupted by money—every level of our political system, the medical industry, and even our academic institutions.

Tweed’s is brought to you by the creators of The Coffin Factory, the magazine for people who love books. The Coffin Factory published five issues with work representing over thirty countries, featuring writers such as: Lydia Davis, Charles Simic, Roberto Bolaño, Joyce Carol Oates, Milan Kundera, Jorge Luis Borges, John Banville, T.C. Boyle, Noam Chomsky, César Aira, Aimee Bender, José Saramago, and Edwidge Danticat.

The Coffin Factory, Inc. is a not-for-profit tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
