We will not continue to use Submittable

Unfortunately, Submittable has doubled its prices and cut back the features available to small journals.

We will need to extract ourselves from Submittable by early March. This means:

  • we will be able to use Submittable to produce Issue 2 of the journal
  • but, we will communicate with you directly via nvqjournal@gmail.com (please ensure that your spam filter doesn’t reject us)
  • however, if you post a note in Submittable to us, we will still be able to see it and respond

Issue 3

  • Not Very Quiet will be published twice yearly in September and March.
  • Issue 3 will be published in September 2018.
  • Submissions for the issue will open in April 2018 and close at the end of June 2018.
  • Issue 3 will not use Submittable – we will notify you via email and accept submissions as email attachments.
