Scrivener Creative Review was founded in 1980 out of McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. Beginning as a Canadian literary review, Scrivener has expanded over the last thirty-seven years into a vibrant publication of international scope which showcases original poetry, short fiction, reviews, visual art, and photography from McGill students, the greater Montreal community, and beyond. We have a history of publishing greats like Leonard Cohen, Seamus Heaney, and Margaret Atwood alongside equally talented new voices. We encourage writers and artists of all levels of experience to submit their work.
At Scrivener, we believe that Montreal, with all of its history and in all of its diversity, is an Alexandria in North America: a city defined first by its art and artists. Our goal is to sustain and encourage this creative community by providing a platform to all who would wish to see it endure.
Our 2017-18 call for submissions is now open! See our submissions page for more information.
