Call for Submissions - 2021 FOLD Program

Hosted by The Festival of Literary Diversity (FOLD)

Submissions to the 2021 FOLD Festival Program are now open!

Every year, the FOLD publishes a unique Festival Program which includes the festival schedule and information and articles and essays from Canadian writers. Articles in the Program showcase a wide variety of styles, approaches, and diverse lived experience.

In 2021, we are pleased to announce that Jenny Ferguson will rejoin the FOLD team as our 2021 Associate Program Editor. We are looking for non-fiction and poetry submissions to the Program. Non-fiction submissions must be between 1000 – 2000 words. Previously published pieces are welcome, as are unpublished pieces. You can submit your work to us by filling out the FOLD 2021 Program Call for Submissions Jotform.

Submissions will be considered until 11:59pm on February 1, 2020.
