Denver Quarterly

Experimenting in the Literary Arts Since 1966

Denver Quarterly is the literary journal housed in the Department of English & Literary Arts at the University of Denver. Founded by novelist John Williams in 1966, the journal has had work honored in the Pushcart Anthology, "The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories," "The Best American Short Stories" and "The Best American Poetry."

Denver Quarterly is a publication that embodies the wide-ranging possibilities for the worlds from which writing may come, and the worlds our authors imagine and write into being. We welcome the work of writers and artists from marginalized communities, identities, and traditions, or those who work with differing abilities, or who may be non-professional writers, or who have otherwise been traditionally excluded from the space of literary journals.
