Q REVIEW – Quest’s Annual Literary Journal

QUEST’S Q REVIEW, our annual literary journal, is extraordinary for its high-quality offerings, the results of our members’ creative side — fiction, non-fiction, poetry and art, many of whom never have published before.  It has been our experience that upon retirement, a new burst of creativity occurs.  Perhaps it’s the release from the daily workplace grind.  Or, the thought of reordering one’s life to considerations that were abandoned when we were gainfully employed.  We want to take up skills that lay dormant and enjoy the discovery of becoming proficient in other fields. Submissions are evaluated by an editorial board prior to publication in the Q REVIEW each spring.

QUEST has workshops in composing poems and prose writing, along with a life drawing class.  Coming together, we listen to the literary pieces that reflect our lifetime experience, get help in improving our output and develop confidence at the task. And participation in these workshops often leads to submissions to the Q REVIEW.


Coordinators:  Hilda Feinstein, Donna Rubens, Sheryl Harawitz
Members read aloud their original short stories, memoirs, essays and poems to which the class reacts and offers suggestions for improvement. The critiques are supportive to both seasoned writers and beginners and are intended to develop and encourage writing skills.


Coordinators: Helen Neilson, Trudy Owett

The focus is on reading aloud and sharing your own poems in a supportive environment where you’ll get detailed feedback. You are encouraged to experiment, to explore language, and to address all aspects of the craft in order to develop your own distinctive style and voice.
