Denver Quarterly is the literary journal housed in the Department of English & Literary Arts at the University of Denver, currently in its 55th year of consecutive print publication. 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 Essays, The Best American Short Stories, and The Best American Poetry.
Denver Quarterly seeks to offer diverse publications that embody 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 are non-professional writers, or who have otherwise been traditionally excluded from the space of literary journals. We do not tolerate submissions that contain hate speech, bigotry, discrimination, or racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, or ableist language or violence of any kind.
