carte blanche

carte blancheis QWF’s online literary journal. It was founded in 2004 by members of a Quebec Writers’ Federation workshop. Since then it has grown into an internationally recognized literary magazine. It is published three times a year.

Each year, the editors select the best submissions by Quebec authors and a juror chooses the winner of the 3Macs carte blanche Prize.


carte blanche has two submission periods, from March to May, and from October to December. They accept original, previously unpublished submissions through their online submission form only. They pay a modest honorarium, and accept fiction and creative nonfiction, poetry, translations (English translations of work written originally in French), comics, photography, and even potentially audio submissions.
