Pittsburgh Quarterly

Pittsburgh Quarterly is one of the nation’s premiere regional magazines, with editorial excellence that lifts it well above other local magazines. Each issue features an original cover illustration, as well as the work of the region’s best writers, photographers and illustrators. Since it was first published in 2006, Pittsburgh Quarterly has led all western Pennsylvania magazines in the region’s main competition for journalistic excellence—the Golden Quill Awards, sponsored by the Press Club of Western Pennsylvania. Over the past five years, Pittsburgh Quarterly has dominated the awards.


Pittsburgh Quarterly employs the best writers, photographers and artists in the region—a group with 40 Pulitizer Prize nominations—to produce a publication that stands head and shoulders above competitors. This is no leaf-through/throw-away magazine. Pittsburgh Quarterly engages, challenges and entertains readers. In an age of decreasing media quality, Pittsburgh Quarterly is a standout exception. Unmatched editorial quality is what attracts readers to our content and to your advertising message.


Pittsburgh Quarterly is home-delivered to the most influential and affluent media audience in Greater Pittsburgh. This group has the highest household income and highest liquid assets in Western Pennsylvania. Beyond that, these readers are Pittsburgh’s key decision makers: successful community, business and opinion leaders. They take Pittsburgh Quarterly seriously.

Shelf life

No other media outlet holds the attention of its audience as long as Pittsburgh Quarterly. Instead of skimming and discarding it, readers return to Pittsburgh Quarterly again and again, seeing your ad on multiple occasions. As a collector’s item for people interested in Pittsburgh, back issues of Pittsburgh Quarterly are retained for future reference. The quality editorial and design of Pittsburgh Quarterly gets and holds the attention of western Pennsylvania readers.
