Quill & Parchment Submission Guidelines


Quill & Parchment is on the lookout for new writers with not only a story, but with the voice to articulate that story. We are currently seeking submissions of poetry, as well as shorter fiction and non-fiction. We regret that due to space limitations, not all submissions can be published. We may save some pieces for publication at a later time.
Shorter submissions may be included in the body of
your email

Please type in the email address below
(We use images of emails to avoid roaming spiders and spam bots)


Please inquire prior to sending attachments. At the present time, plain text is the preferred format.
If you would kindly check out our poetry section and make sure your poem is in our preferred format it cuts down on our time in templating same.

If you are submitting for a specific issue, please do not wait until the 22 or 23rd of the month to send it in! Try to get it in before the 15th of the month. The earlier the better!

It goes without saying that submissions should be spell checked and edited for content prior to being sent. We may occasionally make small editorial changes, or ask the author do so. This should not be construed as cause for offense. Quill & Parchment prides itself on not being just another self-publishing web site. Actual human eyes, and frequently a committee, carefully evaluates all submissions. Once your poem has been accepted you may not withdraw it. It takes time for us to template the poems and frequently art work is created specifically with your poem in mind. We do not mind simultaneous submissions or previously published poems.
Presently, we are unable to pay for submissions, but we are hopeful that will change as our subscriber base grows. Currently, your membership fees are applied toward our hosting and production costs. Our staff is unsalaried but dedicated.
