The New Quarterly is a literary magazine based in Waterloo, Ontario in office space donated by St. Jerome's University.

History and profile

The New Quarterly was established in 1981. The magazine is published on a quarterly basis. It publishes Canadian poetry, prose, and interviews with established writers. However, its mandate is to encourage and nurture new and emerging talent. The magazine tries to strike a balance between a serious and playful tone, above all celebrating literature. Each issue is given a loose theme; for example, "In which science becomes metaphor, poets don lab coats...", "Something About the Animal", and "Fathers, Mothers, Lovers & Others".

The magazine has won several national magazine awards, including the Gold Medal for the fiction by Tamas Dobozy in 2014. Writing from past issues has been nominated for Canadian National Magazine Awards, and McClelland & Stewart's Journey Prize.
