Stay tuned for our next anthology set to be published this fall of 2021!


With out first anthology, Quabbin Quills aimed to celebrate the Quabbin region of Massachusetts with its storied history. Deep beneath the waters of her reservoir, time has stood still for close to a century in the flooded streets of the cities lost to progress. Join twenty-two contemporary Central and Western Massachusetts authors as they embark on exploring what ‘Time’s Reservoir’ means to them.


Mountains reach toward the sun, slowly rising through millennia to impress us with their timeless majesty. Their immensity calls us to climb, grow, and reflect upon their quiet grace that outlives us all. With out second anthology, read all new works by twenty-five Central and Western Massachusetts voices from the Quabbin area as they meditate on the literal and figurative mountains that exist in all our lives.


Words sweep down the hillsides and whisper among the trees of the forest. Stories and verse sneak through the wood, beckoning us to listen to the voices that thicken the dense foliage. Our experiences pool beneath hemlock and oak, lending richness to what we call our home. Read all new works by twenty-eight Central and Western Massachusetts voices from the Quabbin area as their voices fill the valleys of our minds in the third Quabbin Quills anthology.
