Filling Station Magazine Open Call For Submission



filling Station accepts singular or simultaneous submissions of previously unpublished poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, critical non-fiction (about literature and occasionally about visual  art), and visual artBefore submitting to filling Station, please review both the General Guidelines on our website and the genre-specific submission instructions below. Please note that for all submissions, you must include a mailing address and short bio (25 – 75 words) with your submission. For Art submissions, we also require an Artist’s Statement regarding the submitted portfolio of work. For text with spacing considerations, upload your submission as a PDF file in addition to the text document.

filling Station does not have a mandatory submission fee — money should never be a barrier to enter into our pages — but we do rely on readers and contributors to keep the magazine alive. Please consider purchasing a current issue, subscribing to filling Station, or leaving an optional donation in lieu of a reading fee if you feel called to do so. Should a selected contributor already subscribe to the magazine, we can either extend their subscription by 3 issues, or gift it to somebody else of their choosing.


Are submissions open to international authors?

We accept and encourage submissions from everywhere in the world – they are never restricted to Canadian submitters. This being said, we do ask submitters to let us know whether or not they are a Canadian citizen, but this is only because some of the awards that we nominate to (e.g. the Best  Canadian Poetry series) are restricted to Canadian writers.

Are there any page limits?

Page restrictions are noted under the guidelines for each category.

Do I need to include a cover letter and bio?

Yes, please! It can be in separate documents or the same as your submission.
