Literary Magazine



Offbeat and off-kilter, quip is a literary journal publishing stories that move to their own rhythm. We like fresh voices, weird worlds, and themes that stretch the fabric of traditional literary fiction.

    Things We Like Stories that move—emotionally (rip our hearts out, please,) but also through plot. We can’t lie: we like a good plot. We’re not interested in reading stories about a man sitting in room alone, talking about a character who doesn’t appear on the page. Make sure that, whatever happens, something happens. Underrepresented voices. Funny characters, serious characters, strong characters, weak characters, ugly characters, honest characters, and, best of all, all-of-those-things characters. Things We Don’t Like Racism, sexism, classism, ableism. This ties into the above, but we’ll say it anyway: We don’t like stories about characters who hate [insert person] because of [insert uncontrollable circumstance]. No, we don’t care if the character changes on the final page or if the piece is actually a commentary on the terrible world we live in. YA, children’s lit, genre-heavy fiction—unless it's mind-blowingly good. Gratuitous or over-the-top descriptions of violence or sex.
