Editorial Focus: 

Founded in 2012, Five Quarterly is an online literary project that invites people who love to read to participate in our editorial process. Each quarter, five new guest editors ultimately select five poems and five pieces of fiction for online publication. We hope that this model will help to introduce fresh perspectives, diversify the face of publishing, and encourage an expanding literary community. Issues are published in January, April, July, and October. Our annual e-chapbook contest opens on Mar 1.

Tips From the Editor: 

5/Q accepts work year round, on a rolling basis. If you wish to submit to a particular set of guest editors, be sure to send your submission by the end of the month of that guest editor announcement, otherwise your work will move to the next set of editors for consideration. Guest editors are announced at the beginning of February, May, August, and November.
