[twocolumns class=”omega”]Founded in 1970, The Antigonish Review is the third longest-running creative-writing journal in the Maritimes and one of the oldest continuing literary magazines in Canada. We publish poetry, fiction, essays, and reviews. We consider stories, poetry, and essays from anywhere—original or in translation—but we consider it our mandate to encourage and publish new and emerging Canadian writers with special consideration for those writers from the Atlantic region who might otherwise go unrecognized. By situating regional authors within the context of a national/international matrix, we hope to give the other parts of Canada the opportunity to enjoy and learn from the insights and ethos of Atlantic Canada.
