Quaint Magazine is strongly committed to publishing work from traditionally marginalized writers, and in exploring identity performance, particularly as it pertains to subverting the cultural cliche of femininity. Our aesthetic can best be described as politically aware subversive horror candy-coated and wrapped up in a ribbon. We like the visceral and the disturbing, particularly when its married to the cute and innocent. We love Arielle Greenberg & Lara Glenum’s concept of the Gurlesque . Some of the staff’s favorite writers are, in no particular order, Angela Carter, Shirley Jackson, Kathy Acker, Margaret Atwood, Kate Durbin, Lara Glenum, Joyelle McSweeney, Roxane Gay and Dorothea Lasky.
