Quaci Magazine is an online magazine open to both men and women. We accept poetry, prose, non-fiction stories, songs and poetry through art and photos.We will also be doing interviews with creative artists of all sorts.
Quaci Press is a small, independent press that publishes the work of both new and award-winning women poets. Quaci Press aims to publish poetry that pushes the edge and speaks the life of women. We publish 1-2 chapbooks per year and are interested in poetry about the female experience. Of course, if you are a male poet who has a way with words and can write about the female existence in a convincing manner, don't let us stop you!
We are looking for poems with lots of imagery, beauty and mystery. We want honest poems that speak the minds of those who never had a chance to speak theirs. We are not, however, interested in hate speech, pornography, or endless rants about men and/or poltics. Submissions are accepted in English, Spanish and Italian.
