Sepia Quarterly

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Sepia Quarterly seeks writing that makes us feel hazy, golden, sepia-toned. We want deep drifting emotions: nostalgia, maudlin, melancholy, morose, sentimentality etc. To get a sense for what we enjoy, read authors such as Donna Tartt, Jhumpa Lahiri, Lauren Groff, Kristen Arnett, and Ocean Vuong as well as poets such as Billy Collins, Sylvia Plath, and Terrance Hayes.
