MacQueen’s Quinterly, aka “MacQ” for short, was conceived in August 2019 as a renaming of the KYSO Flash literary journal, in large part to reflect its new publication schedule. While KYSO Flash was published bi-annually, MacQueen’s Quinterly launches five issues per year. Content is gathered for those issues during three submission periods, typically open in March, July, and November.

KYSO Flash, www.kysoflash.com, was conceived in May 2014, with the initial website launching on 20 June 2014 in the state of North Carolina, USA; the debut issue was officially launched on October first, 2014. Beginning in July 2015, KYSO Flash was based in Washington state, USA.

MacQ was initially based in Bellingham, Washington (USA), and the debut issue launched on the first of January 2020. Beginning in September 2021, MacQ has been based near Winston-Salem, North Carolina (USA).

*Publisher’s Note:

For more information about curation, please see the essay Uncurated: The Case for a New Term of Art by Rattle editor and curator Timothy Green.

Replacing the term “previously unpublished” with “previously uncurated,” as Green proposes, “leaves open the ability to self-publish on social media or blogs or message boards. It allows the work to be shared on podcasts and open mics. Tweet your poems and flash fiction. Tag the person it was written for on Facebook. Workshop stories online. Blog chapters from your novel-in-progress. This is how a literary culture thrives” (Lit Mag News, 16 March 2023).
