From the publisher:
Canadian Stories is a folk magazine featuring family stories, personal experiences and memories of the past. It is written by "ordinary" Canadians sharing material that is extraordinary. Readers identify strongly with our stories and reach back into their own memory banks to find pleasure and strength in their own histories.

In Canadian Stories, you will find excerpts from olden-day memoirs alongside new material set in the present. We have also published essays speculating about the future. We like family stories about pioneer days, and about life during the Great Depression and the World Wars. Country life, the joys of moving, encounters with animals, vacation experiences, the significance of Remembrance Day – these are just some of the themes that have been presented in Canadian Stories.

Traditional, structured poems and free verse sprinkle our pages. Children's stories are welcome; in fact, we have a young writers' page for authors aged ten to nineteen. Some fiction is also offered, particularly if it is Canadian in setting, plot or characters. Any topic is considered as long as it meets our Authors' Guidelines.

We hope you will enjoy Canadian stories and share some of your stories with us.
