Christopher Robin and I are thrilled to announce the launch of The Memoirist Quarterly, a new literary journal brought to you by The Memoirist.

The Quarterly will be published four times a year and feature an exclusive limited number of memoirs, personal essays, and original artwork and photography. A free version of the publication will be available online at with print copies for sale at a yet-to-be-determined price.

The goal of The Memoirist Quarterly is to spotlight exceptional creative non-fiction work in a sophisticated literary format. We aim to bring attention to some of the great writers online whose talent deserves a broader audience.

Writers and artists featured in the issue will receive monetary compensation for their contributions. Long-form writers will receive $50.00 upon publication; artists and photographers will receive $25.00.

At this point, we are anticipating an August 12th release date for our debut issue.
