text is a free, bi-monthly in-print & online literary magazine with a focus on the concise & eclectic; founded in 2014 by Shaleeta Harper and Philip Gordon in Nanaimo, BC.

“At text, we’re interested in literature composed with brevity and punch: short, snippy poems, razor-sharp flash fiction, and art and photography that tread the line between purpose and chance, making us see the innate beauty in the world around us.

We’re looking for inspiration in the unusual: poetry you’ve scribbled on the inside of a candy wrapper, or Tweeted to your grandmother—Instagram photos of a bug tunneling into the side of a building.”
