Mission & Editorial Focus

P-QUEUE was founded in 2003 by Sarah Campbell with the special intent to investigate the overlaps and departures between the prose line and that of verse. For the last three years, P-QUEUE has tried to prepare a place for the anxious object——that which can’t decide if it’s poem or prose, text or image, spoken or written, found, made, or given, essay about or itself a poetics. We especially privilege work that through this anxiety asks us, shows us, or turns us to the questions of how to live in, live among, and live as human subjects. Which is to say, what we look for——what we do——is care.
