For anyone working up to qualifying for Canada Council or BC Arts grants, or to help attract a traditional publisher, credits in established literary journals is an excellent way to go. CBC has compiled a current list of prime Canadian journals open to submissions. Grants are generally determined by the number of poems or fiction pages a writer has in a reputable, paying journal like the ones listed below. Just to apply for a Canada Council poetry grant requires 10 poems in these types of publications and 40 for a BC Arts grant. It’s always worth sending your most polished prose and poetry to high end literary journals to earn income and helpful credits.
