Quiet Mountain: New Feminist Essays
A Journal of Women's Writing
ISSN: 1557-8879
QME Essays, Papers, Poetry
Quiet Mountain Essays (QME) was an e-journal that featured women's writing, news, and resources for women,
which flourished from June 2003 to December 31, 2013. Unfortunately, when the site closed the pages disappeared as
if the journal had never existed. This was a disservice to the talented writers and academics who contributed to the
journal during its run. The journal's content can never be re-created, however, I would like to pay tribute to its
existence. Please note: This list is incomplete because I can no longer access files from my last computer.  Only files
that I can personally verify will be listed here.
