Bringing back the SLQ paperback

With this offering of the Sentinel Literary Quarterly (SLQ) magazine we bring back the paperback. SLQ has been published online only since October 2008. We have always hoped to return to a primarily print publication with a worthy online presence. It is our hope that you will continue to support and read the SLQ even now that it is no longer 100% free. We shall be investing in high quality content and administration to continue improving your SLQ experience.
