Editorial Focus

“Strong Words for a Polite Nation” subTerrain Magazine was founded in 1988 to publish writers from the other side of the tracks. Each issue features progressive and sometimes controversial writing, alongside timely book reviews and contemporary visual art. Praised by both writers and readers for featuring work that might not find a home in more conservative periodicals, subTerrain seeks to expand the definition of literary and artistic culture by showcasing the best in progressive writing and ideas.

Tips From the Editor

Please DON'T send us formulaic genre fiction (eg. Romance, Mystery, Sci-fi etc.)

Please DO read a copy of the magazine. If you can't find one on the newsstand, we will send you a copy for $5 (and we pay the postage!).

Please DO read our Writer's Guidelines before submitting (at www.subterrain.ca).

We now accept electronic submissions via Submittable (we do NOT accept emailed submissions). Electronic submissions are charged a $3 fee to help pay for our Submittable account and thereby allow us to continue accepting electronic submissions; mailed submissions come with no charge (though you will have to pay for postage).
