The Antigonish Review invites reviews of recent Canadian poetry, fiction and non-fiction; however, all material submitted must be original and previously unpublished.

'Recent' may extend back to a year in time; this is not that unusual for book reviews.

Reviews run roughly between 1,000 and 2,500 words. A reviewer might choose to review a single book, or a review of two-four books that invite connections.

Please note that we distinguish between 'book reviews' and 'review essays'.

We aim for balanced reviews - that is, strengths and criticisms. We reserve the right to reject reviews, or request revisions.

It is a good idea to consult several reviews in one of our recent issues. Our reviews tend to have a conversational, rather than academic tenor.

We are able to offer a modest honorarium per review. If you do not own a copy of the book you wish to review, let us know, and we will contact the publisher. However, we have a considerable number or books for review in our office. If you contact us to express interest in reviewing, we may well have a copy of the book on hand.

If you are interested in submitting a review for consideration, please contact tar@stfx.ca and pitch us your review idea. We do not accept multi-submitted reviews.
