The Pittsburgh Quarterly is a small press literary magazine that grew out of the community writing workshop movement. We present work from new and established writers without emphasis on region, ideology, or style. The works are contemporary, the poetry is usually not formal, ideas and opinions and varied styles are given space. While the print issue is not currently in regular publication, please visit and participate with us in TPQ OnLine. Also, we present a few poetry readings a year and award the Sara Henderson Hay poetry writing prize. The Quarterly awarded the Caliban Book Shop Prize for Fiction in 2001.
