West is where it hurts, West is the rattlesnake you didn’t hear, the dust storm sanding your car, the champagne underneath the Hollywood sign, the checkout line of a grocery store that doesn’t carry mandarin-orange segments in fruit juice, green-chile and cheese burritos from the 24-hour gas station. West is when there’s no West left. West is where you always wanted to be.

EOAGH: A Journal of the Arts

EOAGH: A Journal of the Arts is concerned with reading as a process, the productive chaos of investigative poetic work. These acts of attention explore the close listening inherent not just in writing but also in being written. Inspired by Whitman's assertion that "Reading is a gymnast's act," we see readings as embodied, interdisciplinary responses that engage with one's environment through ekphrasis, phenomenology, queering, conceptual multiplicity, density and difficulty.

Garbanzo Literary Journal

A bean. The garbanzo bean...found throughout the world in nearly every culture’s cooking, and a staple of the vegan diet...is an amazingly diverse bean capable of being bread flour, one thousand flavors of hummus, is full of protein, can look (depending on one’s perspective) like a heart or a mooning buttocks, and is one of the elder crops of humankind. As such, it is the perfect mascot for a literary magazine.

Gargoyle Magazine

Gargoyle Magazine has always been a scallywag magazine, a maverick magazine, a bit too academic for the underground and way too underground for the academics. We are a writer's magazine in that we are read by other writers and have never worried about reaching the masses.

Geist

Geist is the Canadian magazine of ideas and culture—every issue brings together a sumptuous mix of fact + fiction, photography and comix, poetry, essays and reviews, and the weird and wonderful from the world of words. The Geist tone is intel­li­gent, plain-talking, inclu­sive and off­beat. At the heart of our enter­prise is the imag­i­nary coun­try that some of us inhabit from time to time, and which often has some­thing to do with Canada.
