announcement

The call for submissions of our inaugural print issue is now closed. Until the call for our subsequent issue, you can continue to submit your work to our digital publication. Otherwise, consider submitting work to yolk's newest series "In-Transit".

In nature, you will seldom come upon an object with no discernible beginning or end. For its inaugural issue, yolk proposes the theme of CIRCLES. While the website features works of all genres (i.e. poetry, prose, non-fiction, and visual arts), note that only a few select works of non-fiction will appear in the print issue.

Direct all submissions to: themail@yolkliterary.ca

The submission period for our first issue is Jan 15 - Mar 15. Though submissions for our bi-annual print issue are only accepted during the submission period, we always accept submissions for our digital publication. In the subject line, include the genre of your submission and indicate if you would like your work considered for our website publication (i.e. Poetry_Website). Note that all submissions received during the submission period will automatically be considered for print.

For all submissions, consider the following:

·  While we accept simultaneous submissions, please notify us immediately should your work be accepted elsewhere.
·  While yolk requires first serial rights and the right to archive your work on the website, copyright reverts to the author upon publication. Work that has been accepted by yolk should not appear elsewhere for a period of 60 days subsequent to publication. Yolk does not accept any reprints or any work that has previously appeared online (including personal blogs).
·  Please do not inquire about the status of your submission. Each submission will be carefully reviewed by our editorial committee and you will receive a response within three months.
·  Though it is our ambition, yolk presently does not compensate its contributors. However, should your submission be selected for our print issue, you will receive a complimentary copy of the magazine.  
·   Yolk asks that its contributors refrain from submitting more that once per submission period.
·   As our primary interest lies in the quality of your work, yolk does not require bios or publication histories.  
·   Stylistic notes: For all written works, please use legible font and 1.5 line spacing. Though we are especially fond of Garamond, point 12, we do not discriminate against other styles. Should you be compelled to justify your text, do so knowing that you will be choosing a side in a tireless internal dispute at yolk.
