We publish short fiction, poetry, personal essay/memoir, visuals, book reviews and scholarly essays for a general audience. From the Iliad to The Hurt Locker to The Things They Carried, war and art have reflected one another. It is this intersection of war and art that WLA seeks to illuminate.

Quality is the sole determining factor for acceptance in WLA. At its best, WLA is witness to the power of word and image and for the human craving for meaning. If one of the functions of art is to disturb the status quo, to force us to view the world anew, to consider our capacities to build or tear down, then we welcome those disturbances.

Whale Road Review will publish poetry, flash fiction, and micro essays that don’t demand too much time up front, but somehow leave readers changed. We hope readers of all sorts will enjoy these short pieces in stolen moments—waiting in line, using the restroom, riding a train, steeping tea. Whale Road Review will also be a resource for writing teachers and a venue for reviews. We will publish quarterly.

“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.

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).

This is a publication that plans to blur the lines of traditional poetry. Too many publications have a narrow definition of what poetry is or what it should be. We don't. In fact, we treasure poetry that strays from the path. We want raw, evocative, emotional poetry. We love imagery. While we don't traditionally like rhymes, we are not opposed to them if they are done well. We love the free verse; we also love the aubade. The form is up to you.

We do not want: Nature Poems Religious Poems Boring Poems Instead, please send us: Trash Poetry Nerdy Poetry Horror Poetry For more on what we're looking for, please review one or two of our back issues. We ONLY accept online submissions. Please no postal mail.

Due to the format of our publication, we do not take long line or prose poems.
