Participate in Town

Become an associate publisher

You can help us publish Town by posting printed broadsides in your own neighbourhood. The full contents of the magazine appear on this website. Each item is accompanied by a link to a PDF of the broadside. We encourage you to download these, print them out, make as many copies as you like, and post them in your house or office or school, on walls, fences, and other public locations, and leave them in library books, on trains, in coffeeshops, etc. Even better, take a photo of your printed broadside wherever you’ve posted it, and share it with us at writetotown[at]gmail[dot]com.

Submit your work

Town is happy to consider submissions of short poems and very short prose. Please email them (maximum five items per submission, and only one submission at a time) to writetotown[at]gmail[dot]com, accompanied by a brief biographical note. We prefer that you paste your pieces into the body of your email and also attach them. We'll try to respond within four or five weeks.

Remember that every piece we publish must fit comfortably on an 8½-by-11-inch sheet, so length is very important. We can only consider poems of up to 24 lines, and prose of up to about 300 words.
