Now in its 37th year of publication, Event is a celebrated literary journal where new and established talent--in fiction, poetry, non-fiction and critical reviews--will be encountered. Event also serves as a touchstone for writers seeking advice and critique. Our magazine aims to unite the writing and reading community, enriching the life of our readers.
We are proud of our Annual Event Creative Non-Fiction Contest, established in 1987, the longest-running annual contest of its kind in Canada.
Our unique Reading Service for Writers, established in 1993, provides affordable, high-quality editorial feedback to scores of writers, some of whom go on to be published in Event or elsewhere and win literary awards.
Event annually solicits and publishes a selection of "Notes on Writing"--brief, personal insights into the writing process by an eclectic mix of established and emerging Canadian writers.
While over its three-decade history Event has historically placed an emphasis on narrative, our editorial mandate is to cast a wide net and publish both accessible and challenging writing. We do not pursue a particular agenda in literature, save for excellence in expression and intensity of experience.
Our journal thrives on a balance of both traditional narrative and formally innovative works of poetry and prose.
The majority of our content remains unsolicited.
Event covers feature the work of up-and-coming Canadian photographers.
Through its role as the Douglas College Review, Event serves as a creative and cultural ambassador for the College, while the College acts as home and patron of the magazine. We value and nurture the relationship between Event and the Douglas College community.
