Tips From the Editor

We read submissions from Canadian writers all year. Because we receive so many submissions, we accept work from international writers only during certain months, depending on the genre.

Poetry: January, February, May, June, July, and November.
Fiction: March, April, September, and October.
Creative nonfiction: open all year to international writers.

Literary magazines are time-intensive operations often run by or with the assistance of volunteers. Please help us all save time, energy, and eyesight by preparing submissions thoughtfully and carefully.
