The West Coast Feminist Literary Magazine Society is curating submissions for a special issue of Room (est. 1975), a quarterly literary magazine that explores and celebrates the female experience through the creative talents of Canadian women writers.
Issue 40.4 will be unthemed, allowing prose and poetry writers to submit their best creative work on any topic that aligns with the magazine’s purpose: to provide readers with purposeful work that articulates the elaborate, distinct, and surely priceless lives of diverse women.
Contributors are invited to submit original, thought-stimulating prose and poetry that express women’s courageousness, passion, susceptibility, and whimsicality. Prose can include interviews, essays, fiction, reviews, and profiles. Artwork is also welcome.
The editors accept original work by women, including trans* persons, gender-variant and two-spirit women, and women of non-binary sexual orientations.
Word length: up to 3500 words for prose; up to five poems for poetry; up to five images for artwork.
* New Pay Rates: $50 CAD for one page, $60 for two pages, $90 for three pages, $120 for four pages, $150 for five or more pages.
Deadline: April 30, 2017. Read Room magazine’s submission guidelines.
* (Room changed its price structure in early 2017. Previously, rates were $50 for one or two pages, $60 for three pages, $80 for four pages, $100 for five pages, $120 for six or more pages.)
