Korean Quarterly is a non-profit/volunteer publication that provides independent and alternative reporting on issues of identity, racism, politics and the arts and is a forum for the ideas and creativity of the whole Korean American community.  From the Twin Cities to Chicago, LA, NYC, Europe, Pyongyang and Seoul, Korean Quarterly’s readers are members of the Korean American community, including adopted Koreans, 1.5 and second generation, bi-racial and intercultural/interracial Korean American families.  It also attracts many non-Korean readers, including parents and relatives of adopted Koreans, other Asian Americans, and people who have an interest in Korean culture and history, the Korean American community or racial and ethnic identity issues of minority populations in America. 

Korean Quarterly was conferred an
International Affairs Award in the
2006 New America Media national awards

This award honors ethnic press nationwide in English and native languages, and is known as the "Ethnic Pulitzers." 

The Global Korea Award was awarded to Korean Quarterly in 2005.  This award, conferred by the Council of Korean Studies at Michigan State University, is given to an individual or entity that contributes over time to the advancement of the Korean community locally and globally.

Korean Quarterly was honored with a community service award in 2004 from the Consulate General of Chicago, who represents a nine-state area in the U.S. on behalf of the ambassador in Washington.

Utne, the nation’s leading magazine of alternative ideas, announces the nomination of Korean Quarterly for an Utne Independent Press Award in the category of Ethnic Issues Coverage.

Since 1989, these awards have showcased the best from the alternative press in categories ranging from reporting excellence to personal life, culture, and international coverage.

Korean Quarterly stands out as an important independent voice in the North American media. We’re pleased to honor their accomplishments with an Utne Independent Press Award nomination,” says editor Jay Walljasper.

Korean Quarterly, based in St. Paul, MN, was founded in 1997 as a non-profit, all-volunteer newspaper of the Korean American community of the Twin Cities and Upper Midwest. Today, it has a national and international circulation, and covers issues of interest to the diverse Korean American community of the first and second generation, adopted Koreans and their families, and other intercultural/interracial Korean American families.

Korean Quarterly has also received 17 awards of journalistic excellence from the Minnesota Newspaper Association since its founding.
