The editors are wrapping up their review of submissions to the Smoky Quartz anniversary anthology. It has been a challenging decision process with about 200 pieces of wonderful work. Decisions will be sent by email to all who submitted by the end of June.

This print edition is scheduled for publication in Fall 2022. We will be holding a release event with the opportunity for contributors to read their work. Please follow this Smoky Quartz News page for updates.

Many thanks to everyone who submitted work to Smoky Quartz for the 10th Anniversary Print Edition! We received about 200 pieces of poetry, prose, and artwork for consideration!

Smoky Quartz is now closed to submissions while the editors, Deni Dickler, Sara Miller, Deborah Murphy, and Louise Werden continue to review all work. We expect that effort to continue into April/May and to email regrets/acceptances in May/June.

The 10th Anniversary Edition is scheduled for publication in October 2022. We will be holding a release event with the opportunity for contributors to read their work.
