canadian ~ twenty-first century literature since 1999

Starting in September 2006, TDR will publish four new short stories every three months (i.e., in September, December, March and June). Submit here.

Please: only one story per writer per submission period.

Submissions for each issue will be received in the month prior to publication. For example, if you want your story to be considered for the September issue, send it to us in August. See table below for full details:

Submissions open Issue



MAY 2007

September 2006

December 2006

March 2007

June 2007

TDR submissions will be open in these four months only. Submissions sent in other months will not be considered. Submissions sent in for one issue will not be considered for the next issue. For example, if you send your story in August and it doesn't appear in the September issue, the editors are not storing it someplace for consideration at a later date. We try to send an email response to all submissions. Unfortunately, life and/or technology often interferes with these best laid plans. It's not you, or your story; move on with your life. You're a good person; you're a good writer; chin up and submit again.

What else?

  • All work remains copyright of the author.  

  • Simultaneous submissions are accepted; just tell us at the time of submission, please. 

  • Previously published work will not be considered for publication. 

  • The Danforth Review pays $100 (CDN) for a short story. 

  • We do not currently pay for reviews. See: Guidelines for reviews
