Quartz Literary 8

A project of Silver Rose Magazine

Fledgling Listing: This project is new and has been listed with us for less than six months.

About

Quartz Literary seeks fiction and poetry that reflects and fractures. We want to see cracked versions of ourselves. Give us sharpness, but also beauty. Make us feel seen and allow us to discover something new about ourselves. Ultimately, we are looking for work that reflects the experiences, emotions, and details of life, but also subverts them sometimes. We want emotive authenticity and interesting, complex characters. We mostly read literary fiction, but are also open to magical realism, surrealism, experimental, and literary works with mild genre elements (ex. The Martian, Interstellar, Such Small Hands, Baby Teeth, etc.)

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
