Dear Contributor,

As we prepare for publication, we’d like to make you aware of our payment rates and policies.



Writers and Artists are paid $50 in Canadian funds for each published page up to three pages ($150). Your payment for publication in The Capilano Review includes: Your contributor fee, your contributor copy, and either a one-year print subscription OR a two year digital subscription to The Capilano Review.*

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


Please consider donating your TCR payment, or some portion of it, towards our future as an independent, non-profit magazine. If you choose to donate over $50, we will—with your permission—print your name on our Friends of TCR page in the magazine and on our website and send you a tax receipt upon request.

Digital and Featured Content

Digital editions of each new issue of the magazine are available by purchase or digital subscription. Our website includes "from the magazine" excerpts from current issues for promotional purposes. If you do not wish for your work to be featured on our website, please email us at

Online Archive

We are developing an online, open-access archive of all our past issues, dating back to 1972. Once complete, the archive will be freely accessible online and catalogued on our website Digital copies of new issues will be added to the archive a minimum of one year after publication. Print issues will remain on sale as usual (until out of stock). Please note that making archival material available online has no effect on the copyright status of your work—you remain the copyright holder. Please email if you do not wish for your work to be included in our archive.
