Sentinel Literary Quarterly (SLQ) is The Magazine of World Literature published by Sentinel Poetry Movement on the last days of January, April, July and October every year.
SLQ is an amalgamation of two magazines previously published by the movement, namely; Sentinel Poetry (Online) and Sentinel Poetry Quarterly.
Sentinel Poetry (Online) was in publication between December 1, 2002 and April 2008. The Founding Editor of Sentinel Poetry (Online) was Nnorom Azuonye who edited the magazine from inception until February 2005. Amatoritsero Ede served as Editor of the magazine between March 2005 and December 2007. Azuonye returned as Editor for one more issue of the magazine and set it up for a merger with our print magazine; Sentinel Poetry Quarterly which had been in publication between July 2004 and December 2005.
The original concept of Sentinel Literary Quarterly was to publish online and in print. We attempted this is September 2007. We could not sustain it, and restructured the magazine completely, emerging in October 2008 as an Online only publication. We have now added an associated print magazine, Sentinel Champions – magazine of the best entries from our poetry and short story competitions.
We are sometimes quite surprised, but grateful that the readership of our magazine has continued to grow despite our checkered history. We are very proud of our back catalogue that goes back to December 2002. In total, Sentinel Poetry (Online) published 61 issues. We have not missed an issue of Sentinel Literary Quarterly since October 2008 and we are resolved never to. The magazine now publishes Poetry, Fiction, Drama, Essays, Interviews and Reviews. We also run quarterly writing competitions to keep the magazine free to read.
