Reviews, Essays and Illustration
The LRC is always happy to hear from prospective writers and artists, who can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details about our assignment process or with specific queries.
The LRC is committed to publishing established and emerging poets in Canada. But we're changing things up for 2013! So poets, please review the following before forwarding unsolicited submissions.
This year, in each issue of the magazine, we’ll be featuring poems that share a common form or theme. For months devoted to a given form, the pieces can be on any subject, and vice versa. Below is our planned 2013 publication calendar, which you can use as a guide for submission choices: we welcome unsolicited submissions for all issues, but pieces must fit that month’s particular theme/form to be considered.
March: poems from the margins, e.g. pieces from/about our prisons, reserves, North, rural areas, etc.
April: short poems, of less than 50 words—they can be haikus, tankas, rubaiyats, tweet-poems, triolets, etc.
May: poems on the elements—e.g. fire, earth, water, air, wood
July-August: ekphrastic poetry, i.e. pieces inspired by other art forms (visual arts, film, music, etc.)
September: prose poems
October: poems inspired by family
December: poems inspired by food
Please note that there are two reading periods for submissions: 1) May 1 - June 1, 2013, for publication in the July/August to December 2013 issues and 2) September 15 - November 1, 2013, for 2014 LRC issues. (Guidelines on the themes/forms of 2014 issues will be posted closer to the submission window.) Send submissions to email@example.com with a single Word file attachment, including the poems in the body of the e-mail as well. Please include the month in which you would like your work to be read in the subject line of any emailed submissions (e.g., "April 2013—short poems").
