About the Magazine

Founded in 1978 | Canada

Existere - Journal of Arts and Literature is a publication established, administered, and published by students in the Professional Writing Program at York University in Toronto, Canada. The journal was founded in 1978 at Vanier College. It was funded by Vanier College Council from Fall 2007 until Spring 2018 when the journal’s financial supporter became the Founders College Council. In 2019, Existere moved to its current location in the Professional Writing Program in the Writing Department at York University, with financial support from the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies. The editorial team is drawn from the Professional Writing program and is mentored by the Writing Department faculty. Existere publishes exciting new works of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and art from local, national, and international contributors. It publishes biannually, and submissions are accepted all year long.
