Our Times publishes poetry in every issue. Maureen Hynes, the magazine's poetry editor, is looking for poems that reflect the themes of workers' lives, rights, insights, and social justice.
Because we have space for one poem per issue, we only accept poems by workers and poets living in Canada.
Please include a bio and, if you have any union experience or affiliation, this is the place to highlight it! Please include your mailing address with your submission.
Email your submission (maximum five poems, each no more than 45 lines) to Our Times' poetry editor, or mail it to: Our Times, Poetry Editor, Suite 407, 15 Gervais Drive, Toronto Ontario M3C 1Y8.
Please allow eight to 12 weeks for a response.
If you are submitting poems by regular mail, please include a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
Payment: If your poem is accepted, we will pay you $50 on publication.
