Kindling Quarterly was founded in 2012 and is independently published four times per year. Kindling Quarterly is an exploration of fatherhood. Through essays, interviews, editorials, art and photography we highlight creative individuals whose work and lives are inseparable from their role as a parent. There is no shortage of familiar portrayals of dads in media yet we aim to present a thoughtful dialogue about fatherhood that is missing from our cultural landscape. Men who are active caregivers are not a novelty and we do not depict them as such. While the subjects of our stories are fathers, each issue appeals to anyone interested in art, creativity and community.
