AQR regularly publishes visual art in its pages. Here, we will share special features that leap beyond the bound journal. The Alaska Quarterly Review (AQR), published at the University of Alaska in Anchorage, calls itself a literary magazine of consequence with good reason. For a literary journal produced in one of the more far-flung regions of the country, it has generated considerable notice for its stories: Pushcart Prizes, O. Henry Awards, and inclusion in The Best American series for poetry, essays, and mystery writing. AQR has been recognized with a Governors Award as well as by the U.S. Congress for its accomplishments and level of excellence. As writer Stuart Dybek has noted about AQR, "The magazine has a wonderful sense of place about it, and it conveys Alaska without being parochial . The work is original and fresh."
