Editorial Focus

The Fiddlehead is open to good writing in English or translations into English from all over the world and in a variety of styles, including experimental genres. We are always happy to see new unsolicited works in short fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. We also publish reviews, and occasionally other selected creative work such as excerpts from novels and plays. We particularly welcome submissions from Indigenous writers, writers of colour, writers with disabilities, LGBTQQIA+ writers, and writers from other intersectional and under-represented communities.

Tips From the Editor

If you are serious about submitting, read an issue or two to get a sense of the journal. Mailed submissions are accepted all year around; for Submittable, we have two submission periods, Jan. 1st – April 30th and Sept. 1st – Nov. 30th. Simultaneous submissions are okay, but writers may only submit once per calendar year per genre. Please take the time to check out the full submission guidelines.
