    Submission Guidelines

    What's going on in your life, your community, your world, your head? What are women doing? What are we creating? We want to listen to the music, see the art, read the writing. We want to hear about women's triumphs, failures, ways of expression, ways of coping. We want to hear about what bothers you, what builds you up. We want to hear about what makes you laugh, cry, or cry laughing.

    Please send us: Queries for interesting Feature Pieces (1,000-2,000 words) and short pieces (500-1,000 words) or completed features or short pieces:

    • about things that are relevant to you
    • that connect, spark debate, encourage laughter, shed some light
    • about your community
    • about world events
    • about things you are passionate about, that you'd like to explore, debate, discuss, air.

    Subjects we're into (but not restricted to):

    health, sex, marriage, being single, motherhood, social commentary, education, business, law, the arts, friendship, travel, the environment, work, social issues, culture, community, finances, balancing life, adventure, world issues, politics, and popular culture.
    You know, stuff that actually matters.
    For ideas and inspiration, see our list of upcoming issues.

    We're also interested in the following:

    Creative pieces: including original poetry, lifewriting, plays, etc.

    Visual Art: including paintings, drawings, pictures of three-dimensional pieces, prints, photography, etc.

    Suggestion Box

    What do you want to see in our pages? Remember, this is a magazine for you. Snail mail or submit all suggestions for feature articles, books to review, columns you'd like to see, and so on.


    We can currently pay a small honouratium of one hundred dollars and a full bio on our website per feature piece we print.

    We publish the piece and a full bio on our website for poetry, creative work, art, and short articles.

    We greatly value the work done by writers and artists, so we're working on the payment issue! In the meantime, be a part of the conversation! Let's work together to put something out there that is about more than how we look or what we buy!

    Looking to submit some fiction? Hold the phone!

    We are not currently accepting Fiction submissions. Stay tuned for details about our next annual Cahoots Fiction Contest.

    Please DO NOT send us:

    Empty, regurgitated pieces about losing weight, pleasing men in bed, finding a man, makeovers, 7 steps to happiness, fashion that is priced way over anything an average woman's income will allow...we know you know what we mean.

    Dos and Don'ts

    If submitting by snail mail, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) or an email address. Whether submitting by snail mail or electronic submission, be sure to include a cover letter and all pertinent contact information. We treat online submissions as we do mailed submissions and require the same professional presentation of your work and quality of work as we do our snail-mailed submissions.

    Please submit work in Times New Roman 12 point font, and be sure your name and the title of the piece is on each page of your submission.

    If you have visuals for your article(s), please do send them along. Upload them separately using the form below and indicate what article they belong to in the comments box.

    We accept simultaneous submissions and previously published pieces - just be sure to indicate in the comments box if your submission is a simultaneous submission or if it has been previously published (when and where).

    We will be sure to inform you as to the status of your submission once all editorial decisions have been made, but only can do so if you include email contact information (or, in the case of hardcopy submissions, an SASE). If you would like to receive communication regarding the status of your submission but do not need the submission itself returned, please state this in your cover letter.

    Please be aware that we have a small staff and read many submissions every month; in order for us to give each submission the attention it deserves, it may take us up to 3 months to get back to you about your submission. Thank you in advance for your patience.

    If submitting online, please be sure to send your file to us in one of the following formats: .txt, .doc, .rtf, .jpg, or .jpeg. Files submitted in other formats might be accessible to us, but if they are not, we will not be able to consider them. So please make sure the file format is okay before you upload it.

    Snail-Mail Submissions
    Please send all submissions to:

    Cahoots Magazine
    P.O. Box #6025, Station Main
    Saskatoon, SK S7K 4E4

    Submissions received too close to publication date for a themed issue will not be usable in that issue.

    Please fill out the form - This will help ensure that your submission gets to the right person on the Cahoots staff.
