Publisher's Description: Grain Magazine, a literary quarterly, publishes engaging, eclectic, and challenging writing and art by Canadian and international writers and artists. Published by the Saskatchewan Writers Guild, Grain has earned national and international recognition for its distinctive content. We publish poetry, short fiction, and creative/literary non-fiction. No bias in terms of form or style, and the editors welcome submissions that are diverse, idiosyncratic, intelligent, even idea- or concept-driven.

“Making It: 40th Anniversary” is a celebration of Grain’s longevity and forty years of publishing exceptional work. Featuring poetry and prose from Canadian greats including Tim Bowling, Lorna Crozier, Dorothy Field, Patrick Lane, Jeanette Lynes, and rob mclennan, “Making It: 40th Anniversary” highlights the struggles we undertake to make it, whether it be in love, family, or careers. What are you willing to do to succeed? What’s worth fighting for? Artwork that will stick with you by Kyle Beal; new poetry by Jonathan Ball and Adrienne Gruber; new fiction by David Carpenter.
“The Issues Issue” (40.3) is a collection of provocative, remarkable pieces that will make you think about difficult topics—racism, bullying, suicide, sexual abuse, runaways, miscarriages, and systemic oppression. The writers within look these things in the eye and create art, create something beautiful despite the ugliness of inequality, of treating anyone as less-than. This Spring issue features the internationally renowned art of Zachari Logan; new poetry by John Barton and Alice Major; and new fiction by Scott Randall.
