Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Hello and thank you for considering our journal, Quartz Literary seeks fiction and poetry that reflects and fractures. We want to see cracked versions of ourselves. Give us sharpness, but also beauty. Make us feel seen and allow us to discover something new about ourselves. Ultimately, we are looking for work that reflects the experiences, emotions, and details of life, but also subverts them sometimes. We want emotive authenticity and interesting, complex characters. We mostly read literary fiction, but are also open to magical realism, surrealism, experimental, and literary works with mild genre elements (ex. The Martian, Interstellar, Such Small Hands, Baby Teeth, etc.) Also, we are a project of the online journal Silver Rose Magazine. We pay $50 per selected piece. We look forward to reading your work! Best, Quinn from Quartz Literary
