  • Additional info

    We especially encourage BIPOC and trans writers to submit their work. Please submit work only once per calendar year per genre. Multiple submissions in the same calendar year by the same writer will be rejected. Writers are paid $50 CAD per poem and $100 CAD per prose contribution (including book reviews and articles). We are not interested in genre writing, political essays, or rants; that said, we recognize that LGBTQ2S+ experiences are often inherently political, and we invite submissions that explore this through creative writing. We highly recommend reading examples of work in the genre you wish to submit to get a feel for our style.
