The New Quarterly Receives Silver

Date: Tuesday, June 11, 2019

St. Jerome’s University is pleased to recognize The New Quarterly (TNQ) for recently winning two silver awards at this year’s 42nd National Magazine Awards. The winning contributions – Terence Young’s “The Bear” in Poetry, and Meaghan Rondeau’s “Half-Thing” in Personal Journalism – secured TNQ’s place as the best showing by a Canadian literary magazine and ninth best overall.

More than 185 Canadian print and digital magazines put forth submissions in both languages for the competition, with TNQ receiving 5 nominations. TNQ literary magazine has been publishing the best of Canadian writing – short fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction – since its debut in 1981 and is headquartered on St. Jerome’s University’s campus.

The National Magazine Awards is one of two distinct and bilingual awards programs used to promote “healthy journalism” by the National Media Awards Foundation, a charity dedicated to “promoting excellence in journalism and visual creation.” In the 20 years that the publication has participated in the National Magazine Awards, TNQ has won 10 gold, 9 silver and 43 honorable mentions.

“With this year’s awards, The New Quarterly enhances its legacy as an award-winning forum for so many creative and talented Canadian poets and writers, “ says Scott Kline, the St. Jerome’s University Vice President Academic and Dean. “SJU is delighted to support the work of TNQ and to have TNQ staff as part of our SJU campus community.”
