Geist is the Canadian magazine of ideas and culture—every issue brings together a sumptuous mix of fact and fiction, photography and comics, poetry, essays and reviews, and the weird and wonderful from the world of words. The Geist tone is intelligent, plain-talking, inclusive, and offbeat.
Tips From the Editor
Before submitting work, please read several issues of the print magazine, or dig deep into the archives at geist.com. While you’re at it, why not read (or reread) George Orwell’s pertinent essay “Politics and the English Language”?
Geist is always seeking short (800-1200 words) non-fiction, typically personal narrative, for the Notes & Dispatches section. Please send a few sentences about who you are, what you’d like to write, and why you think it’s a good fit for Geist to email@example.com with the subject heading DISPITCH.
