Publisher’s description: The Malahat Review, established in 1967, is among Canada’s leading literary journals. Published quarterly, it features contemporary Canadian and international works of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction as well as reviews of recently published Canadian poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction. On occasion it also publishes interviews, essays and issues on a single theme or author, such as "Essential East Coast Writing," published October 2012.
The Malahat Review is dedicated to excellence in writing. Its aim is to discover the most promising of the new writers and to publish their work alongside the best established writers, to present work accurately and attractively to readers, and to increase awareness of Canadian writing in general through perceptive critical comment. The magazine sponsors a Long Poem Contest and a Novella Contest, held in alternating years, the Far Horizons contest (poetry and fiction in alternating years) for emerging writers, the Constance Rooke Creative Nonfiction contest, and the Open Season Awards for poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. Please see our website for details on all contests and for general submission guidelines.
