Drexel Publishing Group is:
Painted Bride Quarterly
Established in 1973, Painted Bride Quarterly is a community-based, independent, non-profit literary magazine published quarterly online and annually in print, PBQ‘s main agenda is to maintain and grow a venue for the highest quality literature that best represents the individual voice. PBQ publishes emerging and established regional authors in the context of their peers from across the country and around the world. PBQ works to continually surprise its readers. The combination of PBQ‘s dual-city editorial tables and the ever-changing student staff make its voice unique. Supported by Drexel University, PBQ offers student staffers the opportunity to view submissions analytically and actively contribute to the magazine with their personal opinions and ideas. Throughout the year, staffers are also exposed to professional-level experiences ranging from press releases and event planning to copy editing and book design. Additionally, PBQ‘s ever-expanding website creates opportunities for students whose interests and skill sets lean toward video, audio, and graphic art.
