The Puritan | Frontiers of New English is an online, quarterly publication based in Toronto, Ontario, committed to publishing the best in new fiction, poetry, interviews, essays, and reviews.

The Puritan seeks, above all, a pioneering literature—work that pushes boundaries, or sees boundaries as unstable, or lines to be re-drawn. The poetry, fiction, and non-fiction featured here often advances toward the symbolic frontier, challenging limitations and forging into previously unexplored—or neglected—aesthetic territory. But such work may also revisit and revitalize traditional forms. The Puritan embraces work wherever it lands on the conceptual spectrum, so long as it is original, intelligent, and engaging.

Since its foundation in 2006, The Puritan has published work by, and interviews with, some of Canada’s finest literary talents. It is one of very few online literary magazines that offers honorariums for its contributors. It is also one of the first two online magazines to have its fiction featured in McClelland & Stewart’s prestigious Journey Prize Anthology.

The Puritan’s annual literary contest, The Thomas Morton Memorial Prize has featured such distinguished judges as Miriam Toews, Ian Williams, Zsuzsi Gartner, and Margaret Atwood.
