Qu Literary Magazine

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Thank you for sharing your work with Qu: a literary magazine. 

We are now open for submissions until January 15, 2020!

Payment Upon Publication: $100 per prose piece, $50 per poem or visual art. Contributors will also receive one copy of magazine.

We do not accept previously published work. International  submissions are accepted with a caveat. Unfortunately, we cannot pay for contributors who are US citizens living abroad or non-US citizens at  this time. Payment for publication in this case will be five copies of  magazine.  

Qu requires First Rights to publication (electronic and print). All rights revert back to authors upon publication. We, however, post everything we publish on the archive section of the website after print publication, and so require Non-Exclusive Electronic Rights. 

NEW: Qu Literary Magazine will now publish book reviews on Qu's website. We'd like to feature books of literary fiction, nonfiction and poetry. Books must have been published this year, or will be published soon. We are especially interested in featuring work by underrepresented voices. Debut works are also welcome!

Unfortunately we cannot pay for book reviews at this time. Current Queens MFA candidates are welcome to submit reviews. We will not accept reviews of books by current Queens MFA faculty and students, as well as Queens MFA alumni. Reviews should be up to 3000 words, and submitted to qulitmag@queens.edu

ALL FICTION, NONFICTION, POETRY, STAGE & SCREEN AND VISUAL ART SUBMISSIONS MUST BE DONE VIA SUBMITTABLE. Manuscripts submitted to email above will NOT be considered. 

Qu is a literary magazine,  published by the MFA program at Queens University of Charlotte. The Qu editorial staff is comprised of current students.
