NorthWord Magazine call for submissions – poetry, prose or art

NorthWord Magazine publishes twice a year through the support of community volunteers and advertisers. Publication launches take place in April during National Poetry Month and September to coincide with Alberta Culture Days.

For each edition, the Northern Canada Collective Society of Writers’ Board of Directors selects a guest editor. Each guest editor is required to pick a theme to kick-start the creativity. They also decide on the artwork for the front cover. 

As submissions come in, the managing editor removes names before showing the guest editor for transparency purposes.

After the selection process, the publication is produced and disbursed throughout the Wood Buffalo region.

This edition’s Guest Editor is Scott Meller​ and the theme is Intensity.

Accepted Submissions:​

  • prose (3,000 words or fewer, fiction or non-fiction)
  • poetry (50 lines maximum)
  • excerpts from current projects
  • visual art
