Writing Opp: Quaker Fiction

We know there are plenty of Quakers who only need a little nudge to share their perspectives with a wider audience. If you know anyone who should write about Quaker creativity and the arts, please share this with them!

Fast Facts:

  • Features run 500-2000 words
  • Submissions close August 22, 2022.
  • Questions? Email editors@friendsjournal.org

In November 2021 we published our first issue dedicated to Quaker fiction, specifically speculative and science fiction. This year we’re opening it up to all genres—crime, fantasy, romance, science fiction and horror, young adult, and more. Surprise us with your work!

For this special issue, we’re seeking short stories from 500-2000 words, and flash fiction of less than 500 words.

We’re seeking stories of Quakers and their experiences outside of what is true of the world we inhabit today. If you missed last year’s issue, you can submit your speculative and science fiction this time. But you can also share fiction set in the real world, either set in the present or past.

We welcome submissions from Friends and non-Friends alike. While we’re casting a wide net, we’re not the right market for erotica or extreme horror. We are also not a market for fan fiction or other works that use other folks’ intellectual property. We are a queer-affirming publication and will not be accepting any work based in homophobia, transphobia, or general racism, sexism, bigotry, or fascism.
