Thank you for considering Quarter Press as a home for your work!

If you have not already done so, be sure to familiarize yourself with the press by visiting

Please be sure to select the appropriate category for your submission, noting between The Quarter(ly)'s various themes, where to submit longer work, chapbook contests, or if you'd like to expedite your response time.

I look forward to checking out your creations, and I wish you the best,

-Chris Smith, Editor-in-Chief

Zine-length to full-on Graphic Novel, we’d love to see what you can do—as an individual or a team. We can’t pair writers with artists, unfortunately, but we’re actively looking to publish zines, standard-size comics, and graphic novels.

We need a strong sense of both your story and art. If the work is a single-comic length (32 pages or less), then we need to see the entire project. For longer works, please submit a 1-2 page synopsis of the story, 10 - 20 completed pages, and a realistic completion date.

Remember, "Interest in Seeing More" does NOT guarantee publication.


Thank you for wanting to help Quarter Press cover website, literary memberships, hosting fess, and the ability to pay our contributors a token amount. (If we see an increase in funds, we will be sure to up our future payouts!)

I truly appreciate your interest in Quarter Press and your willingness to help keep us pushing forward to the next project.

Please Note: This does NOT guarantee publication or sway the submission one way or another. The same review process will be given to each submission.

Ends on

Each Issue of The Quarter(ly) is themed. However you interpret that theme is up to you. I do NOT need your reasoning behind it.

Please Note: Deadlines may close earlier if the issue fills!

In the Dark - Show me what takes place in the dark: the intimate, the creepy AF, the quiet, the invisible, or anything else we find in the darker spaces.
