Submissions Guidelines

Tips and Guidelines

Submit your work via Submittable

• Previously unpublished, original work only.

• We accept simultaneous submissions – but keep us informed.

• For poetry, we recommend sending up to 6 poems.

• For fiction and non-fiction, we don’t set a word limit. But submissions really should knock our socks off.

• We accept multiple submissions.

• Expect to hear back within six months of submitting. (Keep in mind, we run 100% on volunteer support.)

• If selected for publication, we will send along editorial suggestions. We like working together!

• While we have a focus on Canadian writing and reviews, submissions are open internationally.

• We pay our contributors each a sum of $25 CAD. We are working hard to increase this drastically to what we think they deserve. But right now, it’s all we got. Contributors also receive two copies of their featured issue, print.
