Not Very Quiet

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Issue 3 will be published in mid-September 2018. 

Not Very Quiet is a twice yearly online journal which aims to offer an opportunity for more women poets of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds to publish their work. We believe it’s more important than ever to provide a platform to extend the range and breadth of poetry written by women so as to encourage and strengthen its impact.

We accept a wide range of poetic forms. Our next call for submissions will be in January 2019. For more information see our Submission guidelines.


  • NVQ's Submittable account will be inactive from September 2018 to January 2019. 
  • We will reactivate Submittable in January 2019 to accept submissions for Issue 4.
  • The provocation for Issue 4 will be published on our website in October 2018. Please check our website or follow us on Facebook.
