Guidelines for submitting your work


Scrivener accepts simultaneous submissions. Please indicate if all or part of your submission has been submitted for consideration elsewhere. We thank you in advance for informing us promptly should one of your simultaneous submissions be accepted elsewhere.

All contributors are encouraged to consult past issues of Scrivener to get a feel for our style and design parameters. PDFs of our most recent issues are available on our website. Physical copies can be obtained at The Word Bookstore, 469 Milton St., Montréal.

Submissions that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered. See our detailed guidelines for each section: Fiction, Poetry , Nonfiction and Visual Art. Contributors please be advised: due to the fickle nature of nonprofit publication the editorial board may see fit to extend this deadline. Please wait a few weeks after the last posted deadline before inquiring about the status of your submission. Thank you!

If you have further questions, email our managing editors at

IMPORTANT NOTICE: In the unlikely event your submission is marked as spam by the submission form, please email it directly to the address listed on the Editorial Board page of this website.
