The Atlantean Publishing Wiki
Atlantean logo

Atlantean Publishing is a British small press that has been going for nearly 20 years and is based in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, UK. The press is run by its founding editor DJ Tyrer, who does almost all the related work. It produces several serial publications and numerous one-off releases, specialising in poetry and short fiction, both 'general' and 'genre'.
Atlantean is a non-profitmaking enterprise; in fact, it is loss-making. The name, of course, derives from Atlantis.

Using This Wiki

You are invited to add to this wiki. For some rules and guidance, see here.


The aims of Atlantean Publishing are:

  • To provide free and at-cost publications for readers looking for something a little different;
  • To provide a place of publication for previously unpublished writers;
  • To provide an outlet for poems and the sorts of short or uncategorisable stories that are seldom seen in mainstream publications;
  • To put the merit of the contributions first, rather than accepting work on the basis of the author's past publication credits;
  • To encourage the art of writing outside the constraints of the mainstream or preconceptions of genre, form or readership.

Join the wiki

All contributors of written content or artwork to our publications over the years (and readers) are welcome to add their own profile pages here on the Atlantean wiki to hold a mini-biography or list of publication credits — please see the Contributions To The Wiki page first for help if you plan to create your own. For an example, the editor's page looks like this: DJ Tyrer's contributor page.
If you don't fancy trying to edit a page, please feel free to just drop us a note at the usual addresses asking us to put up a little bio on your behalf: simply let us know what details you would like included, and we will happily create the page for you.
