The Drexel Publishing Group in the Department of English and Philosophy serves the University by providing literary publications that highlight outstanding writing ranging from student work to international submissions. The DPG oversees the journals The 33rd, PBQ, and Maya and publishes DPG Online in addition to developing and producing events and new publications from which Drexel University as a whole will benefit.
The Drexel Publishing Group (DPG) oversees four literary publications at Drexel University, including Painted Bride Quarterly, The 33rd, Maya and DPG Online. These publications highlight outstanding writing from Drexel students and faculty, as well as international authors.
As an independent, non-profit literary magazine, the Painted Bride Quarterly’s primary agenda is to grow and maintain a venue for the highest quality literature that best represents the individual voice. PBQ takes pride in publishing both first-time authors and Pulitzer-prize winners, quarterly online and annually in print, ensuring that the content is interesting and contemporary. The combination of PBQ's dual-city editorial tables and the rotating student staff make its perspective fresh and its voice unique.
Maya serves as Drexel University's undergraduate student-run literary magazine. Maya has had a presence at Drexel for over 40 years, and is an outlet for creative expression in poetry, prose, and the visual arts.
The 33rd is an interdisciplinary, multi-genre anthology that features work from both Drexel students and faculty. Its versatility and wide-rage of topics make the anthology a exciting addition to the freshman writing curriculum at Drexel.
