General Submissions

We ceased our publication on August 2023.
We thank you for your support!

The Quiet Reader welcomed personal submissions of literary short stories (max 4,000 words), flash fiction and non-fiction for. 

Our standards were high. All work was read by preliminary staff readers, then referred to our editors, so that our online readers can find for some fine juried pieces.
