Tips From the Editor

Please check our website for details on our submissions windows. We also encourage submitters to study the magazine to get a sense of what we publish. SQ fiction is selected on the basis of originality, art, and meaningfulness. Good storytelling and a sense of humor are especially appealing. We like to see a strong narrative design from beginning to end. Most of the work we publish is by newer writers, and we are very alert to the promise of a writer's growth and of future works that may be discerned in submissions we see. All work must be submitted electronically through the submissions portal.
