The Submissions Window for Our Next Memoirist Quarterly Issue Is Now Open!

On the heels of the release of our first literary magazine, we are thrilled to announce that we have opened the submissions window for our Q4 issue, slated for publication this December.

The Quarterly is published four times a year and features an exclusive limited number of memoirs, personal essays, and original artwork and photography. 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.

We anticipate a yet-to-be-determined December release date for our second issue.
