Font wants you!

Since its first issue in November 2021, Font has thrown the spotlight on English-speaking writing through the regions, within cultures, and behind the scenes. From the Gaspé to the Eastern Townships, from the pens of Young Black Writers and the Wendake, from students and teachers, on stage and on edgeFont has been there.

For its February 2023 issue, Font is seeking submissions from members of the Quebec Writers’ Federation. Submissions can be in any literary genre (prose, poetry, drama, audio, video) that speaks to your place as an English-language writer in Quebec. Font is especially looking for members beyond Montreal and Quebec City, and members who identify as outside the margins, whatever those margins may be.

The QWF Gala theme this November was Complex Times: Nothing Is Black and White. It’s a powerful statement: true yet reductive, optimistic yet subversive. Explore that theme in your submission—address the complexities, the challenges, the hopes and the fears it represents. We do indeed live in interesting times, for both better and worse.

Max length: 800 words prose, 35 lines poetry, 5 minutes audio or video

Deadline: January 13, 2023

Remuneration if accepted: $125
