Amsterdam Quarterly was founded in April 2011 as a tri-quarterly, online, literary magazine and an annual, printed, literary anthology. AQ’s goal is to publish, promote and comment on writing in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and the world.
AQ’s spring 2014 issue on families of blood and choice will include an exclusive interview with David Sedaris and a memoir by Neil Hughes.
