Helmed in the island of Jersey, Islanded Quarterly is a new online literary magazine publishing poetry, prose, and photography. They are seeking meditations on the islanded parts of our psychology, that is, the remote and secluded parts of our minds that harbor secret reverie or bottomless remorse. They like thoughtful writing, broad and brooding skies, and long walks on the shore. They publish all genres, and they are primarily interested in the feeling and mood of a piece, rather than its theme or setting.
Right now, Islanded Quarterly is seeking submissions for their first issue, to be published in the summer of this year. Fiction authors may submit short stories between 1,500 and 5,000 words. Poets may submit poems of any length. Submitting authors should wait 30 days before querying about a submission. In an effort to evaluate each submission solely for its literary merit, Islanded Quarterly does not require cover letters or biographies. Both new and established writers are welcome to submit.
Authors published in Islanded Quarterly will receive payment in the following amounts: for short stories, £15.00 for the first 1,500 words and £0.01 for each additional word, up to £45.00; for poems, £15.00 each; and £15.00 per photograph.
Islanded Quarterly accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that authors notify them is their work is published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.
