P.S. Reminder: our submission call for issue 3 is currently open (residents of Canada only please). See our submissions page for details.


Submission Call for The Quilliad’s Third Issue: The Art Issue

Many apologies to anyone who was waiting for this to be posted–when the editor-in-chief gets sick, things get delayed. We’re also working on a Kickstarter campaign so we can pay you more for your work, so we’re pretty busy. You can submit your poetry, (short) short stories, and even photography and visual art (as .jpegs) this time around! Please see for submission guidelines.

The submission deadline is March 31. No submissions will be accepted for this reading period after that date.

Your faithful editor-in-chief,
Sarah Varnam

A note: we are currently only accepting submissions from people living in Canada.

A Quick Update

Hello, fellow writers and readers,

Besides a few appearances at local literary and arts events, The Quilliad has been in hibernation for the winter, but soon we will begin working on the next issue. Our submission call will be going up within a week, so keep an eye out for that! We’ll be looking for art as well as literature this time around. We’re also gearing up for the spring craft and lit festivals, so expect updates on where you can find us.

Sarah Varnam,
Editor-in-Chief of The Quilliad
