About The Quiet Reader

We ceased our publication in August 2023. Thank you for all the support.

The Quiet Reader was an online seasonal literary magazine, born in a town called Solitaire, in the state of Quarantine in the country of 2020, founded by travel writer Ramon Stoppelenburg.

Our goal

Our goal was to publish mesmerizing (English) creative fiction and non-fiction, flash prose, travel writing, literary translations, by new, emerging, and established writers.

What were we looking for?

We were looking for writing that surprises, captivates, takes us to another place or just comfortably joins right next to us on the couch.

We encouraged submissions from writers of all identities, of any background and living anywhere.

Take us along

Writing that is adventurous, fresh and feels like that late-summer first day at school when you were young. New writing is always new, refreshing and strange at first sight. But let’s get to know the characters involved, take us along and make us smell and taste all the new stuff you present. Less Americana, though, more International.
