About Quarter After Eight
"Quarter After Eight, a crucible for the ongoing experiment we call literature, is now offering a reading series where our community can come together and hear the writers who will define our literary future," says Eric LeMay, Associate Professor and Stocker Professor of Creative Writing and Quarter After Eight faculty advisor.
Quarter After Eight is an English graduate student-produced journal focused on innovative and often experimental writing and art. It is committed to including writers from underrepresented groups, including Appalachians. Notable contributors over the past 28 years include Diane Seuss, Negesti Kaudo, Dani Putney, Mary Ruefle, Tobias Wolff, Denise Duhamel, Ander Monson, Peter Ho Davies, Michael Martone, Brenda Miller, and Oliver De La Paz.
"Our contributors have been nominated for Pushcart Prizes and reprinted in anthologies, including the Best American series," Walsh noted.
QAE was chartered as a student organization in May 1994 by a small volunteer staff of English Department graduate students at Ohio University who conceived of and published the first issue. The journal’s name commemorates the start time of the founder’s first official meeting.
