TNQ Receives Five National Magazine Awards Nominations
St. Jerome’s University is pleased to recognize The New Quarterly (TNQ) for recently receiving five 2019 National Magazine Awards 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 the 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.” More than 2,000 creators from 187 Canadian print and digital magazines submitted to this year’s National Magazine Awards, with TNQ amongst the top 15 short-listed magazines receiving five or more nominations.
Congratulations to TNQ and its 2019 National Magazine Awards nominees, including David Huebert – “Six Six Two Fifty” (Fiction); Lisa Martin - “The Good Death” (Personal Journalism); Erin Noteboom - “Too Strong to Stop, Too Sweet to Lose” (Poetry); Meaghan Rondeau - “Half-Thing” (Personal Journalism); and Terence Young — “The Bear” (Poetry).
“St. Jerome’s has a long and successful relationship with The New Quarterly, and these National Magazine nominations confirm what we know: TNQ is a national treasure because it provides a well-respected forum for so many creative and talented Canadian poets and writers,” says Scott Kline, the St. Jerome’s Vice President Academic and Dean. “We wish the TNQ authors well as they contend for these National Magazine awards"
