Dear Brian,

Thank you, 
Natasha Smith
Editor, Voicings Literary Magazine

·         We welcome submissions of original short stories, creative non-fiction, and art, by Aboriginals writing in Canada.
·         In the future we hope to have the resources to also accept poetry; so, poets, please check back in with us for later issues.
·         Please only send previously-unpublished materials.
·        Write your cover letter in the body of the email. Please include why you would like to be published in Voicings, whether you have been published before and where, any awards you have received, whether your submission is a short story, work of creative non-fiction, or art, the word count of your written piece, and your contact information. 
·         We believe artists should be paid for their work. We are a small venture, and therefore at this time we offer $15 per accepted short story, work of creative nonfiction, or art.
·         Word limit for short stories and creative nonfiction is 3,500 words.
·         Artists, please send a maximum of 5 images.
