Founded in 2011, Paper Nautilus has a broad range of tastes. Our only criteria is quality, so whether you specialize in hybrid genres, minimalist experimental short stories, traditional sonnets, you name it—if it's done well, we want to see it. We believe in variety, and gravitate toward producing a magazine that's dynamic, eclectic, and refreshing in our selections. We also strive to support emerging writers, in addition to those already established in their careers, through both our annual print issue and our chapbooks.
