Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
As our publishing tastes cover a wide variety, here is a very incomplete list of authors, artists, and various media that we would die to work with / publish / have made. These are a HUGE indication of our aesthetics. Erin Morgenstern, Susanna Clarke, Ben Templesmith, Neil Gaiman, David Almond, Take Shelter, The 39 Deaths of Adam Strand, Nova Ren Suma, Over the Garden Wall, Haruki Murakami, Donnie Darko, Daytripper, Jeff Lemire, Sean Murphey, Joe Hill, The Golem and the Djinn, Louise Erdrich, Luca, Samurai Jack, What We Do in the Shadows, Coen Brothers, Spirited Away, Brad Neely, Adventure Time, The Hawkline Monster, Michael Deforge, Allie Brosh, Kate Beaton, Graham Annable… We love the blending of real life and the fantastic, the absurd, the magical, the heartbreaking, and the things that scare the shit out of us. We believe in sustainability, equity, and the empowerment of all voices. Our mission is to eliminate single-use plastic (any plastic packaging or packing materials are either old stock or have been reused from shipments we have received), along with supporting causes to better the world at large. We regularly donate to the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, various Black Lives Matter causes (including individual’s GoFundMe to non-profits like The Okra Project), and non-profit environmental protection organizations. We also believe in paying our authors and artists. While it might not be much, we try to show our appreciation to those willing to trust their work to us.

Submissions Policy
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. 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. Please send us your bio, type of submission, and submission length in the body of an email. As an attachment, please include the ENTIRE work(s). For non-fiction, feel free to submit a brief pitch for an interview / article idea. Remember that an interest in the pitch does not guarantee publication. For prose submissions, be sure your document is double-spaced, in a legible font. Book-Length Works Please send us your query letter in the body of an email, along with a short list of artists / styles you see fitting your work. As attachments, please include a 1 - 2 page synopsis and the first 20ish pages, or the first three chapters / stories—whichever is shorter. Email everything to chrisatquarterpress(at)gmail(dot)com.
