Quiddity publishes two online issues of work each year, in April and October. We have two reading periods - June through August and January through February. Please submit only once per submission period.

Quiddity manages submissions through Submittable. If the online submission process creates an insurmountable obstacle, you may query the editors via email to request to submit through regular mail. Do not email a submission to Quiddity, as your work will be deleted unread.
