contact email: 

The Dalhousie Review is currently soliciting submissions of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction that explore the complexities of historical and contemporary European identities and that present European life in ways that may be unfamiliar to contemporary readers:


  • POETRY: Poetry submissions may consist of up to five poems and in any style.
  • FICTION: Fiction submissions may be up to 8,000 words in length, and no submission may consist of more than one story.
  • NON-FICTION: Non-fiction submissions may be up to 4,000 words in length, and no submission may consist of more than one essay.


Submissions are invited from both established and emerging writers, although we are particularly interested in publishing work by emerging writers who have begun to establish themselves in Europe but are not necessarily well-known in Canada. While we welcome submissions from countries in western Europe (France, Germany, Italy, etc.), we are also interested in publishing work from smaller countries in central and eastern Europe (including Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, etc.) as well as work from Europe’s western edge (such as Iceland and the Faroe Islands).


All submissions should be saved in a single file (.doc or .pdf format) and sent to by no later than April 1, 2021. The file should include a cover letter that contains your contact information (name, mailing address, and email address) and a short biographical note. All submissions should be previously unpublished, and simultaneous submissions are strongly discouraged. For more information, please contact guest editor Jerry White (J.White@USask.Ca) or visit our website at


Please note that The Dalhousie Review is an English-language journal, so works in other languages will need to be published in translation. However, we are committed to publishing poetry in its original language (in facing translation), and we welcome inquiries from translators as well as writers.
