Alexandria Quarterly is, like the tag line says, a curated portfolio of art and literature. It is the hope of the editor that Alexandria's pages are filled with praise, worship, disgust, argument, resolve; that each issue acts as a healing art, a question without an answer, a celebration of unanswered questions and a good long thought shared among friends--all of whom believe that there is magic in our stories, our photographs, our paintings, our music.

Our online issues are published in August, November, February and May. Our print issue, a collection of the online issues, is published in May.
