Event is a celebrated literary journal where new and established talent--in fiction, poetry, non-fiction and critical reviews--will be encountered. Event also serves as a touchstone for writers seeking advice and critique. Our magazine aims to unite the writing and reading community, enriching the life of our readers.
* We are proud of our Annual Event Creative Non-Fiction Contest, established in 1987, the longest-running annual contest of its kind in Canada.
* Our unique Reading Service for Writers, established in 1993, provides affordable, high-quality editorial feedback to scores of writers, some of whom go on to be published in Event or elsewhere and win literary awards.
* Event annually solicits and publishes a selection of "Notes on Writing"--brief, personal insights into the writing process by an eclectic mix of established and emerging Canadian writers.
* While over its three-decade history Event has historically placed an emphasis on narrative, our editorial mandate is to cast a wide net and publish both accessible and challenging writing. We do not pursue a particular agenda in literature, save for excellence in expression and intensity of experience.
* Our journal thrives on a balance of both traditional narrative and formally innovative works of poetry and prose
* The majority of our content remains unsolicited.
* Event covers feature the work of up-and-coming Canadian photographers.
