Smoky Quartz Online Journal

Smoky Quartz is MWG’s online journal of literature and art, named after New Hampshire’s state gem. Writers and artists with strong connections to New Hampshire are featured in each issue. We publish poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction, and a diverse selection of art and photography.

Please Note:

MWG is not currently accepting submissions to Smoky Quartz because we are currently working on our seventh print anthology, The Mud Chronicles: A New England Anthology.  We hope you will consider submitting your work to The Mud Chronicles instead. You can view the submission guidelines on the Publications page.


We’ll announce on this page and at the Smoky Quartz site when submissions are open again. In the meantime, please enjoy the Spring 2017 Issue and previous issues of Smoky Quartz.
