Taking Submissions: The Quarterly Journal – Laughter and Tears

October 31, 2023

Deadline: October 31st, 2023
Payment: $5
Theme: Laughter and Tears

Each Issue will be themed. However you interpret that theme is up to you. We do NOT need your reasoning behind it.

Please Note: Deadlines may close earlier if the issue fills!~ Laughter and Tears – Oct. 31 – This time of year becomes an odd mix of happiness and sadness, let’s explore those elements, both individually and where they intersect.

What’ve you got to show us?

  • Stories and / or Poems

    For Stories: We’re open to micro works all the way up to 10,000 words. Just keep two things in mind: We want to be engaged and the submission must be completed (no pitches, please!)

    For Poems: We’d love to see up to five poems from you, but you can always just send one, too.

  • Art

    As long as it has some tie to the current issue’s theme, we’re open to see any art created in any medium at any time. Just know that it will need to “work in print” and—might—be presented in black and white.

    We WILL NOT Accept any AI-Generated art.

    For ART ONLY, you may choose to submit via email by sending jpgs, PDFs, or PNGs to chrisatquarterpress(at)gmail(dot)com

  • Graphic Stories

    Show us your comic strips or complete short works; we’d love to see them all! Please try to keep submissions to 20 pages or less. Feel free to also send a collection of comic strips / one shot comics, as well. (Please note that our publication size / dimensions might change between issues. Our “Norm” is 6×9”). These must be COMPLETE works.

    For Graphic Work / Comics, you may choose to submit via email by sending jpgs, PDFs, or PNGs to chrisatquarterpress(at)gmail(dot)com

  • Analysis / Interviews / Reviews

    As long as it is tied to the theme in some way, we’d love to see any and all media analysis (film, music, literature, etc.), interviews with notable creatives, or reviews of past—or present—media.

    We’re open to anything up to 10,000 words. (Feel free to pitch non-fiction ideas; however, please note that our “Interest in seeing a draft” does NOT guarantee publication.)
