TriQuarterly, the magazine that The New York Times once called “perhaps the preeminent literary journal,” has made its Web debut with a new name — TriQuarterly Online — at http://www.triquarterly.org, garnering “hits” from readers in 60 countries in its first four weeks.
TriQuarterly (TQO) Online 138 was launched July 5 after a partial “soft launch” in April. TQO 138 includes new writing by eminent American fiction writer William Gass; admired contemporary American short story writer Antonya Nelson; PEN/Hemingway Award-winning novelist and Oprah Book Club author Jane Hamilton; Cuban-American writer and translator Achy Objejas; emerging poet Hannah Sanghee Park and others. The cover was created by writer and visual artist Audrey Niffenegger.
TriQuarterly Online is at once the same publication and a very different one from the national literary magazine founded at Northwestern University in 1964, according to Reginald Gibbons. Gibbons, professor of English in Northwestern’s Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, served from 1981 to 1997 as TriQuarterly’s editor.
