Submissions are open from August 15-September 15.
We consider unpublished work of poetry and prose (both fiction and creative non-fiction). We welcome experimental works. Please limit prose submissions to 2500 words and poetry submissions to three poems. We accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know if another publication accepts work you’ve submitted to Canthius.
About the Journal
Canthius is an intersectional feminist magazine that publishes poetry and prose by writers of marginalized gender identities, including trans, Two Spirit, non-binary, agender, cis women, genderqueer, GNC, and intersex writers. The magazine is published bi-annually on the unceded territory of the Anishinaabeg and the traditional territory of the Ojibway and the Mississaugas of the New Credit. Recognizing the historical underrepresentation of certain groups in the Canadian literary arts, we are committed to publishing diverse perspectives and experiences and strongly encourage Indigenous women, Black women, and women of colour, to submit.
