Editorial Focus

Painted Bride Quarterly’s editorial staff is triangulated out of Philadelphia, NYC, & Abu Dhabi, with a community-based process for work. PBQ pioneered the bridge between print & online, publishing all work in online quarterly issues & on print annuals. PBQ publishes poems, stories, & non-fiction that represent the individual, with a preference for the clever, irreverent, & urbane. Our authors, both emerging & established, are published in alternating themed & unthemed issues. Founded in 1973 at the Painted Bride Arts Center in Philadelphia, PBQ is currently housed at Drexel University.

Tips From the Editor

Painted Bride Quarterly accepts up to 5 poems, fiction up to 5000 words, and essays and reviews up to 3000 words, in any genre or school (occasional exceptions are made.)

Check the website for upcoming themed issues.
