About us


What we do

[places for writers] helps writers find homes for their work. Our goal is to help you write more and get your writing published.


Since 1997 [places for writers] has featured submission calls and contests for publications in Canada and around the world: from independent presses to large well-established journals, from blogs and web journals to print magazines with wide distribution.


The Editor

Barbara Fletcher

[places for writers] was founded in 1997 and is updated by Barbara Fletcher. Barbara is a published poet, blogger/writer, and web editor/producer. She attended the Humber School for Writers (mentorship with author D.M. Thomas), and has also worked with online literary publications.



How the site works

Most calls for submission and contests come direct from publications. If you’d like to submit a call or contest for consideration, please use the submission form.

The site is updated on a volunteer basis and all costs are covered by the ads on the site.
