QQ uses Submittable to manage submissions. We typically open submissions at least once per semester. Our ongoing annual opportunities are the Fall Chapbook and Spring Magazine. We are also accepting content for our podcast series.

Additionally, we hold annual Spring Writing Awards. Sort of our version of the Oscars. These awards allow writers to submit work that may be too long for our other opportunities. Winners in each category receive a cash prize. 

Our current categories are:

  • Fiction Writing

  • Essay Writing

  • Poetry Writing

  • Graphic Narrative Creation 

  • Play Writing

  • Cover Art

  • Roy A. Burkhart Religious Poetry Writing (Spring Award)

  • Walter Lowrie Barnes Historical Fiction Writing (Spring Award)


Create a free account on Submittable for more information, and to search for more opportunities after our submissions close. You can follow our Submittable to be alerted on updates.

All reviews are blind, meaning only the QQ Faculty Advisor knows the identities of writers and artists until final decisions are made. QQ Staff review submissions for the podcast, spring magazine, and cover art award, while off-campus judges choose the winners of writing awards in a separate review process.
