Call for Submissions: Sea & Cedar Magazine

Are you a writer or artist living on Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii, Bella Coola, or the Gulf Islands?

Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL) is currently seeking literature and art submissions for the first issue of our new serial digital publication, Sea & Cedar Magazine. The submission deadline to have your work considered for our Summer Issue (July 2021) is May 15, 2021. You will be able to submit to us year-round, but we will post deadlines for consideration in specific issues.

Sea & Cedar Magazine is a biannual digital publication dedicated to showcasing exemplary new writing by both emerging and established writers in VIRL’s service area. We also seek to highlight the work of visual artists who are creating at all levels of experience in VIRL’s service area. Our goal is to provide a platform for a diverse range of voices to be heard, to support the many talented and innovative individuals creating literature and art in our communities, and to provide our readership with access to engaging and thought-provoking local content.
