Mount Royal University

We invite submissions for the second issue of The Centennial Reader. Essays can be on any topic of interest to an informed, Canadian audience.

As part of its centennial celebrations during 2010‐2011, Mount Royal University began an online, peer‐reviewed database of essays to offer a publication forum for intellectual discussion for Canadian writers. The Mount Royal Centennial Reader straddles both worlds: the academic world and the popular publication world. Submissions should therefore apply intellectual thought to topical concerns, offered in an entertaining and popular way.
