Montreal Serai welcomes your own original submissions of prose, poetry or fiction which may not exceed 3,000 words. It reserves the right to reject any submission that does not meet its standards or mandate and will not entertain violent or sexually explicit material or material that does not respect human dignity or offends minorities on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, disabilities or personal beliefs.
A maximum of eight photographs will be allowed in the case of visual art in .jpeg, pdf and tiff files. Videos should be in mpeg format and compressed. Submissions should be made in the body of the email or in an attachment thereto. Snail-mail submissions are also accepted and must include an email address for acknowledgement and urgent communications. Photographs and texts will not be returned unless accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope. The owner of the work retains all rights and allows M/S to publish it in one issue and to archive it for posterity. If the contributor is found to have violated M/S guidelines the submission will be withdrawn from the issue. M/S is not responsible nor can it be held liable for any consideration if other sites reprint a M/S article without M/S’s permission. All sites seeking to reprint a piece from M/S must obtain M/S’s permission first and clearly state that it is a reprint from M/S. Contributors are not normally paid since M/S is a free magazine run entirely by volunteers. However, if there are funds left over from Canada Council for the Arts subsidies after operating expenses are taken care of, these are pro-rated and ex-gratia payments are then made to those contributors whose work has been published at least two or more times in M/S.
Submission deadlines are 1 March (push 15 April), 1 June (push 15 July), 1 September (push 15 October) and 1 December (push 15 January). Publication begins at the end of those months with regular updates of articles to the site over the course of the following month. Kindly send an author’s biography of no more than 25 words. By submitting via email or snail-mail, the author is deemed to have accepted M/S’s terms and conditions. Snail-mail submissions must be signed by the author, otherwise they will not be entertained.
