A call for submissions in Creative Nonfiction, Fiction, Poetry, and Reviews has been issued by The Fieldstone Review, an online literary journal based at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon.  Since 2006 TFR has published poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, and reviews from Canada and abroad.

Submissions are now open for the 2017 issue. All must be previously unpublished (this includes blogs and Internet fora). The Fieldstone Review is eclectic in nature and accepts a wide variety of genres and styles. No entry fee is required. Submission deadline is January 15th.

Creative Nonfiction and Reviews Guidelines

    • Word limit: 2500 words. This is applicable to both creative nonfiction and reviews.

Creative Nonfiction

    • This is a broad category that includes anything from memoirs to social criticism. Hate literature, unsubstantiated ranting, and vindictive criticism, however, will not be considered. For more information on what is included in the term, please refer to the Creative Nonfiction Collective’s definition of it.


  • Should be written in response to recent work of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, or drama, or a recent film or season of a TV series.
  • Recent work is here defined as work that has been published or released for the first time within two years of the end of the reading period for the current issue of The Fieldstone Review (e.g. a review of a novel published in 2035 would be eligible for publication in the 2035 or 2036 issues of The Fieldstone Review.)
  • Each review of a textual medium should have the work of a single author as its subject.
