Journal Rock & Sling

The editors of Rock & Sling want to be surprised, more than anything. Surprised at the solidity of your work, the beauty of it, the tension in it, the argument of it, the freshness of it, the experiment of it. We live in a mysterious, challenging, fraught world, and we look for work that engages, challenges, or extends those realities. Work that puts us in peril.

Journal Room Magazine

Room [est. 1975] showcases fiction, poetry, reviews, art work, interviews and profiles about the female experience. The magazine was originally called Room of One's Own, in honour of Virginia Woolf's assertion that, “[for a woman] it is necessary to have five hundred [pounds] a year and a room with a lock on the door if you are to write fiction or poetry.” We envision the magazine as an open forum for women writers, including trans* persons, gender-variant and two-spirit women, and women of non-binary sexual orientations.
