The New Quarterly is a magazine of Canadian fiction, poetry, and conversation, primarily about the writer’s craft. Their mandate is to nurture emerging writers by publishing and promoting their work alongside that of well-established writers TNQ admires, and to provide an editorial context in which both can be read. They try to balance serious consideration of matters literary with playfulness and invention. The tone is generally celebratory.
