About Quadrant

Quadrant is published ten times a year, monthly, except for combined issues in January-February and July-August. Each year we publish more than 200 articles, 200 poems, 70 book reviews, 20 short stories and 75 letters to the editor.

Quadrant accepts unsolicited, previously unpublished articles that fit within its general profile of a journal of ideas, essays, literature, poetry and historical and political debate. Although it retains its founding bias towards cultural freedom, anti-totalitarianism and classical liberalism, its pages are open to any well-written and thoughtful contribution. Some of our writers are internationally renowned; some are previously unknown.

We are happy to consider articles of any length on their merits; there is no minimum length but an upper limit of 3,000 words is usually sufficient.

By submitting a work to Quadrant you licence us to publish it in Quadrant Magazine and Quadrant Online.

Non-Fiction Articles

To submit non-fiction articles and letters to the editor for the magazine, email both Rebecca Weisser (Editor-in-Chief) and George Thomas (Deputy Editor).

To submit an online article, email our Online Editor, Roger Franklin.

Please do not send typewritten non-fiction articles. Instead, email them as Word attachments, either PC or Mac.

Quadrant does not normally publish footnotes with articles. Please keep references to a minimum but, where necessary, embed them in the text itself. In some cases, we will publish an article with footnotes intact not in the printed magazine but in the Quadrant Online version.

Poetry and Literary Criticism

Poems and literary criticism should be emailed to the Literary Editor, Barry Spurr.

Send the poems and articles as Word attachments. Ensure that your name is at the head or foot of each poem.

Short Fiction

Short fiction should be emailed to the Deputy Editor, George Thomas.

Send the stories as Word attachments. Ensure that your name is at the head or foot of each story. Short fiction submissions should be between 1,000 and 4,000 words.



Quadrant pays contributors for magazine articles, reviews, poems and short fiction. If your submission is accepted for publication, one of our team will contact you to arrange payment.
