Quiddity seeks exceptional prose and poetry from emerging and established writers around the world. 

Reading periods are July through August and January through February.

Our editors prefer work that encompasses the quiddity of the human experience. We appreciate character-driven prose that shows a strong sense of place and gritty fiction that leaves us feeling like a time travel paradox stuck outside during a thunderstorm. We are drawn to narrative poetry that connects to region and place, lyric poetry where sound and form expand the content, and where the content strives toward uncertainty. Regardless of genre, form, or subject matter, we find that work that carries the weight of beauty in language stays with us long after we finish reading it. 

We look forward to reading your work.
