Alice Major has published ten collections of poetry and served as first poet laureate of her home city of Edmonton.
The New Quarterly is a magazine of Canadian fiction, poetry, and conversation, primarily about the writer’s craft. Our mandate is to nurture emerging writers by publishing and promoting their work alongside that of well-established writers we admire, and to provide an editorial context in which both can be read. We try to balance serious consideration of matters literary with playfulness and invention. The tone is generally celebratory.
Writers we've published were included in the most recent shortlists of the Scotiabank Giller Prize, Griffin Poetry Prize, Commonwealth Writers' Prize, & the Writers Trust Fiction Prize.The New Quarterly
