subTerrain’s mandate is to publish contemporary and sometimes controversial Canadian fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and visual art. Presented in an attractive and accessible magazine format, subTerrain features interviews, timely commentary, and book reviews in every issue. Ninety percent of the magazine’s editorial content is original and previously unpublished material from new writers and artists. subTerrain is praised by both writers and readers for featuring work that might not find a home in more conservative periodicals.

From the editors:

“Our main objective in fulfilling our mandate is to continually challenge the status quo—by showcasing the best in progressive writing and ideas, we seek to expand the definition of Canadian literary and artistic culture.

We highly recommend READING an issue of the magazine to see what we’re all about. Please do NOT send us formulaic genre fiction (horror, romance, sci fi, etc).

Do see our Writer’s Guidelines at www.subterrain.ca for full guidelines.”
