Dear Contributor,

We are thrilled to be publishing your work—welcome to the TCR community. Please fill out this form to confirm your agreement with TCR's publication policies.



Contributors are paid $50 CAD per published page, up to a total of $150, unless otherwise noted by the editor. (Note: the exception is reviews, which are paid $50 CAD per review regardless of length)

Your payment for publication in The Capilano Review includes: your contributor payment, your contributor copy, and two print subscriptions to The Capilano Review—one for yourself, and one gift subscription you can pass along to a friend. Please note: if you do not wish to have a print subscription, you may opt for a two-year digital subscription instead.

*Contributors can also purchase additional copies of the issue for 50% off the $14 cover price.


Kind donations from our community are crucial to TCR's future as an independent, non-profit magazine. We are extremely grateful when contributors choose to donate their TCR payment or some portion of it. If you donate over $25, we will print your name on our Friends of TCR page in the magazine and on the website (unless you choose to remain anonymous). We will also send you a tax receipt.


As a contributor to TCR, you are also a member of The Capilano Review Contemporary Arts Society. You will receive our bi-monthly newsletter and have voting rights at our next AGM.
