Surprise surprise, I haven’t even made my first post as a Joyland editor, and we’ve already decided Vancouver’s not big enough for me. So I’m expanding into the Prairies, and don’t forget the Territories! This means all you fiction writers from here to Winnipeg are now encouraged to send Joyland Vancouver-ish your work, including stories that are set in (or make reference to) these areas, even if you happen to live in Toronto.
I love dark humour, boundary-pushing, and satire. I love work that explores and/or has been influenced by oral storytelling traditions. Contemporary themes and mythic sensibilities. I like weird nature, the vaguely grotesque, the hilariously tragic. But most of all I like sharp, well-edited, professional submissions with a brief bio, so read the guidelines carefully and SUBMIT.
