canadian ~ twenty-first century literature since 1999

May 31, 2009: Submissions are now closed for our "pre-hiatus" June 2009 issue. 

This issue will be our final issue before our hiatus begins (i.e., we're going to take a break for a while). 

There is no minimum or maximum length requirement.

Please: only one story per writer per submission period.

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

  • International submissions are encouraged. 

  • Work will be kept on the website for two years and archived with the Library and Archives Canada.
