Just in time for International Women’s Day, the new (sadly, final) issue of Quaint Magazine is now live! Quaint is an American journal that showcases work by female-identified and genderqueer/non-binary folk, much like some of my other favourite Canadian magazines like Room Magazine and Canthius.
I’m really pleased that the new issue of Quaint includes my short fiction, “Shish Kabob.” It’s about love and confusion and wine and Science World experiments. I hope you enjoy it!
I’ve had my eyes on Quaint Magazine since it first began a few years ago, attracted to its mission to publish work “from traditionally marginalized writers, and in exploring identity performance, particularly as it pertains to subverting the cultural cliche of femininity.” Check out the new issue and their archives for great stuff. I’m really glad I got to be a part of the Quaint Magazine community.
