Established in 2020 by travel writer Ramon Stoppelenburg, The Quiet Reader is a publication designed to present new international literary art.
Our goal is to publish mesmerizing creative fiction and non-fiction, flash prose, travel writing, and literary translations, from emerging, and established writers.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for writing that surprises, captivates, takes us to another place or just keeps us company on the couch.
We want writing that is adventurous, fresh and feels like that late-summer first day at school when you were young. We want to know the characters involved and to go on a journey where we can smell, taste and hear the places you visit. Any subject, any genre, any style. English language only.
Our standards are high. All work will be vetted by preliminary readers, then referred to our editors.
Annually in print
The Quiet Reader is a quarterly online publication, and an annual print edition.
We plan to publish new material four times online per year. Published authors will be paid.
