We are open year-round, with rolling deadlines. Our current deadline is October 31, 2020.
Submit your short stories, poems, personal essays or excerpts (that stand alone) from any genre of writing. We’re willing to consider any form of writing that is well-written and from the heart. We especially love writing that has some connection to writing for wellness – narrative medicine, medical memoir, writing the self, healing writing, etc.
Please use 12 pt font, double-spaced formatting. We prefer short pieces. Range is 15 to 2500 words, excluding works cited. Please submit one narrative or essay at a time, or up to 3 poems. Simultaneous submissions are fine.
We accept previously published pieces, as long as they are currently available for repeat publication. Please let us know where your piece was previously published so we can give proper credit.
All pieces will be published on our website and author’s will be paid a one-time $20 CAD honorarium. Twice yearly, we’ll select the best from among all our published online submissions for publication in our magazine. All authors whose work is chosen for this magazine will receive 1 printed copy and 1 electronic copy. Each year, we also publish an anthology. All authors published in this anthology will receive 1 electronic copy.
