About

The Quilliad is an independent literary and arts publication based in Toronto. We started out as a chapbook put together by the University Heights Literary Society and have evolved into a full-fledged journal published by The Quilliad Press. We publish emerging and established writers and artists in our pages, and we welcome submissions from all Canadian writers, including POC, LGBTQA+, neurodivergent, and disabled creators. Our spring/May issue is open to general literature (no genre fiction or poetry), while our fall/Halloween issue is open to apocalyptic fiction, retold fairy tales, horror, and science fiction as well.
