About


Kathy Volk Miller and Marion Wrenn at the Collingswood Book FairPainted 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 allows for immediacy, accessibility and permanence simultaneously. 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. PBQ does not limit itself to specific regions or genres, and we publish poetry, fiction, and prose from emerging and established authors from across the country and around the world. The combination of PBQ’s volunteer editorial board and ever-changing student staff makes its published voice unique.
