…The mills / used to grind people small enough/ to stop caring that their hands hurt.
William Doreski—‘Winter Approaches Harrisville’
Welcome to Amsterdam Quarterly’s original website. AQ was founded in April 2011 and its goal is to publish, promote, and comment on writing and art in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and the world. We hope you enjoy reading the work selected for this twenty-seventh issue (AQ27) and we look forward to your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org or submissions at email@example.com.
AQ’s remaining themes for 2020 are: The Weather for AQ28 (summer 2020, submission period April 2020) and Choices for AQ29 (autumn 2020, submissions period July 2020). For AQ28 send work that takes place on a dark, stormy night of the soul, or on a warm, sunlit summer’s day. For AQ29 send work about choices: relational, financial, occupational, legal, etc.
