  • Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
    Painted Bride Quarterly, established in Philadelphia in 1973, is one of the country’s longest running literary magazines. PBQ is a community-based, independent, non-profit literary magazine published quarterly online and annually in print, making it accessible to a broad and diverse audience. This hybrid format simultaneously allows for immediacy, accessibility and permanence. The book allows us to transcend any questions of legitimate publication for authors, while serving our contributors with the timely, and easily shared, publication of their work online. The editors at PBQ are proud of their democratic editorial policy, and believe that it helps PBQ to retain an eclectic aesthetic. With three editorial boards in their different cities (Philadelphia, New York, and Abu Dhabi) and an ever-changing student staff, our publication is truly unique.
