Editorial Focus

Geist is a magazine of ideas and culture with a strong literary focus and a sense of humour. The Geist tone is intelligent, plain-talking, inclusive and offbeat. Each issue represents a convergence of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, photography, comics, reviews, little-known facts of interest, cartography, and the legendary Geist crossword puzzle.

Tips From the Editor

Our mandate is to publish emerging and established writers and artists from across Canada, bringing them to a wide audience. We encourage submissions from writers of colour, writers with disabilities, LGBTQIA2S+ writers, and writers from other intersectional and marginalized groups. Before submitting work, read several issues of Geist, or dig into the archives, to get a sense of the kind of the work we publish.

Geist is always seeking short (800-1,200 words) nonfiction, typically personal narrative, for the Notes & Dispatches section. Dispatches are usually first-hand reports of apparently simple encounters—with people, places, objects—that capture the spirit of our time.
