A short history
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
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.
You too can help keep SLQ going by
entering one of our
competitions, or by making a donation to the cause.
