Understorey Magazine seeks stories of ageing while female.
What is too old? What is too young?
Why do these questions matter more for women than men?
How can we move beyond age in our conversations, workplace, media and perceptions of ourselves?
Understorey Magazine publishes stories of women’s lives told through personal essay, poetry, literary fiction, spoken word (audio), illustration and visual art.
This call is open to writers and artists who identify as female or non-binary and also identify as Canadian, First Nations or Metis, or currently live in Canada.
For Issue 14, we extend a special invitation to writers and artists who are new to their craft but experienced in life!
Deadline: September 15, 2018
Please read our mandate and submission guidelines before sending your work
EXTENDED DEADLINE: September 15, 2017.
We are excited to announce that Issue 12 of Understorey Magazine will be dedicated to writing and art by women of African descent in Nova Scotia.
This project is funded in large part by the Delmore “Buddy” Daye Learning Institute, an organisation focussed on excellence in Africentric education, with additional funding from the Canada Council for the Arts.
Issue 12 will be published in both digital and print editions and will be guest-edited by author/editor Lindsay Ruck.
We will also hold two community writing workshops during May 2017. One workshop will be in the Halifax Regional Municipality and another in Shelburne, NS. (Please stay tuned for dates and times.)
Submissions are now open to all who identify as women of African descent and who live in Nova Scotia (as well as African Nova Scotian women living outside NS). Please contact us with any questions and see full guidelines on our submissions page.
