About SCR

Founded in 1980, Scrivener Creative Review is a Canadian journal of arts and letters based in Montréal, Québec. Operating out of the English Department at McGill University, Scrivener showcases fresh new English-language poetry, short fiction, and visual art.

For forty years, Scrivener has presented the work of established figures, such as Louis Dudek and George Elliot Clarke, alongside that of emerging writers and artists.

Scrivener is opened to submissions twice a year: once in the fall for our general issue, and once in the spring for our Spotlight series.

For general inquiries, please contact us at scrivener.creative.review@gmail.com.

Thank you for supporting Scrivener Creative Review!
