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 and Visual Art.
