subTerrain Magazine #80 (Canada)


subTerrain Issue #78 Cover
subTerrain Issue #78 Cover – Canadian arts journal

subTerrain magazine is an arts journal published 3 times a year from Vancouver, BC in Canada. They strive for “a stimulating fusion of fiction, poetry, photography and graphic illustration from uprising Canadian, U.S. & international writers and artists.”


They have a few opportunities (some with fees) like Lush Triumphant Literary Awards but I’ve chosen to focus below on the upcoming Summer/ Fall 18 issue. Scroll down the page to the bottom to see all of the current ones (with orange buttons).
