Mission Statement:

Quabbin Quills is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Massachusetts that provides authors from the Quabbin region and greater New England the chance to have their written work professionally published—allowing up-and-coming authors to build their writing portfolios and to give casual writers an opportunity to be heard.

Quabbin Quills was founded in 2017 in an attempt to amass the talented collection of authors and poets in the Quabbin region. There are a diverse set of writers in this section of Massachusetts, but there was no organization that allowed them to showcase their work.

Our first anthology, Time’s Reservoir, was an experiment to see if we could collect enough works to publish a unified voice for the Quabbin region. Gratefully, we were overwhelmed with responses.

With our vast array of submissions, as well as our positive reception from the community, Quabbin Quill became a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity in order to continue making anthologies and writing opportunities for our local writers.

As we expanded, we were fortunate enough to award our first Quabbin Quills High School Scholarships in 2020. With the community’s support, we hope to continue that tradition as well as publish anthologies annually.
