About DVQ

Mission Statement

There are many fantastic literary journals out there, looking specifically for submissions from women, feminists, gays/lesbians, Jewish, Christian, African-American, et al. Since creating this online literary journal in 2009, we’ve been providing an outlet for AND by everyone: every age, race, gender, sexual orientation, and religious background. This journal, in essence, celebrates and unifies diversity.

About the Editor

Krisma, the primary editor and founder of DVQ, was born and raised in Springfield, Illinois, but after looking for a more diverse surrounding, she moved to the New York City area in 2001. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in 13th Moon, cc&d, East Jasmine Review, Folly, Forge, The Griffin (online), Nomad’s Choir, RiverSedge, Seventh Quarry, and Wisconsin Review.
