Zine Submission Guidelines
Don't have a book-length project? Then consider submitting your previously unpublished work to Quarter Press Zines! Check out our previous publications, here.
These can range from a 2.75 x 4", 16-page, staple-bound, hand-assembled publication to a perfect-bound chapbook publication of 40 pages or less. They can be a single story, a small collection of works (fiction, poetry, non-fiction), or a graphic work (fiction, non-fiction, or other). Heck, they could simply be an extended joke / collection of strip comics! However, please note the sizes of our publications, as our Zines need to be one of these sizes / dimensions:
Hand-Assembled, Three Color Zines for 16 - 24 pages (These are all printed black, white, and an accent color of your choice):
- 2.75" x 4"
- 4" x 4"
Perfect Bound Zines for 24+ pages (can be full color, and other sizes may be discussed / considered, but these are preferred):
- 4" x 4"
- 5" x 8"
- 6" x 9"
Zine submissions need to be finished! This means that we will not look at scripts or half-finished graphic works of this length. Your submission must be in a final draft form to be considered! Script or unfinished works will be automatically rejected. However, if you want to "pitch" us a quick idea to gauge our interest, feel free to do so. Please note, though, that a "We would be interested in seeing this" reply does not guarantee an acceptance of the final work.
That being said, if your work is primarily text--a short story, a small collection of essays, etc.--you do NOT need to find an artists. If you have one, or are one, please submit the work complete with illustration. Otherwise, we will find an artist to provide the cover and a handful of illustrations to accompany your text. Of course, text submissions still need to be complete and in a final draft form.
Please submit all of the requested materials to chrisatquarterpress(at)gmail(dot)com, with "Submission - Zine - Your Title - Name" in the Subject line.
Please allow 3 - 4 weeks for a response. At this point, we will do our best to get back to you one way or another. If you do not hear from us by then, feel free to send a follow up.
