More about the Malahat Review:
Established in 1967 and published out of the University of Victoria, The Malahat Review is arguably Canada's most prestigious literary journal. It publishes poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction by new and established writers from Canada and abroad as well as reviews of Canadian books.

Unlike with contests, it doesn't cost anything to simply submit your work to Malahat.  Unsolicited poetry submissions should consist of five to ten poems on any subject and in any style. The magazine will often accept several poems by the same author; therefore, please do not limit your submission to a single poem.

Unsolicited submissions of short fiction may range in length from 1,200 to 8,000 words.

Unsolicited submissions of creative nonfiction may range in length from 1,000 to 3,500 words. No restrictions as to subject matter or approach apply. For example, a submission may be personal essay, memoir, cultural criticism, nature writing, or literary journalism.

Complete submission guidelines here.

See Brian Henry's schedule here, including writing workshops and creative writing courses in Kingston, Peterborough, Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Georgetown, Milton, Oakville, Burlington, St. Catharines, Hamilton, Dundas, Kitchener, Guelph, London, Woodstock, Orangeville, Newmarket, Barrie, Gravenhurst, Sudbury, Muskoka, Peel, Halton, the GTA, Ontario and beyond.
