This is just a quick post to remind everyone that there are 15 days left of both our submission call and our Kickstarter. If you are a Canadian writer or artist, you still have time to submit your work. We’re looking for flash fiction, short stories, poetry, comics, photography, and art from Canadian writers and artists in any of the following genres or on any of the following topics:
- literary science fiction and horror
- magic realism
- fairy tales, folk tales, myths, and legends
- monsters, death, magic, fear, or anything else that evokes the spirit of the season
Send us 1-5 pieces. We pay $12 per contributor plus a contributor copy and the opportunity to feature at our launch party.
As for our Kickstarter, we’re at 46% as of this afternoon! We’re raising money to pay for The Quilliad: Issue 6, The Quilliad Press’s first line of chapbooks, and our future as a press. We’re a small press publisher committed to publishing and promoting work by emerging and established Canadian creators. In addition to our publishing projects, we also write profiles of local artists and their projects, review small press books, cover local arts and literary events, and post about our poetry parrot-in-residence. And we have plenty of rewards for backers. We’re offering poetry on demand, art prints, copies of The Quilliad and our future chapbooks, and work by our talented staff members, all of whom are published writers.
If you’re interested in supporting the arts, small press publishing, new writers and artists, and/or Canadian culture, check out our Kickstarter: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1765917797/the-quilliad-press-and-issue-6.
