Now entering its 50th year of publication, is an award-winning, internationally recognized literary magazine that publishes fiction, poetry, non-fiction, notes on writing and book reviews by emerging and established writers three times a year. While 90% of our content is Canadian, we welcome submissions written in English from around the worldâ€”and our pages strive to reflect the diversity of the reading and writing communities we serve. As one of Western Canadaâ€™s longest-running literary magazines, our covers feature contemporary photography by B.C. artists.
stepping-stone for writers
Our publication acts as a stepping-stone for writers, many of whom go on to win , receive artist grants, and get published elsewhere after having been first published in our pages. We have published many of Canadaâ€™s most both before and after they gained national or international recognition, and continue to support gifted new and emerging writers. The majority of our content remains Â and we consistently provide advice and critique to emerging writers. It is our goal to support and encourage a thriving literary community locally, provincially and nationally, while maintaining our presence in North America and abroad.
