"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

The Quiet Circle: Introspective Essays, Subtle poems, Gently Unreal Fiction

Submissions accepted year-round.


“For its inaugural issue, The Quiet Circle seeks writing that journeys inward and cares about the human condition while avoiding flashiness or shock value. We seek fiction in non-realist categories (surreal, fabulist, speculative, and others) but we avoid harshness and spectacle in favor of depth. We desire sincerity and humanity in essays. We seek poems that maintain grace and gentleness even in revolution.”
