The Augur Preview Issue will be a collection of fiction, poetry, and graphic fiction reprints, featuring at least 75% Canadian content. We aim to create an issue that sets a precedent for the voice and tone we’re looking for in future original submissions.
Why reprints? We want to show how Augur Magazine will bring together voices that can be found in a variety of disparate publications, forming a cohesive tone that explores the line between the real and unreal. That said, we know that doing a call for reprints limits the kinds of work we’ll get and authors we’ll hear from—so we’re happy to accept submissions that have previously been published on blogs, in student magazines and journals, in unpaid publications, and in any other form of publication.
The Preview Issue will be released for early access when we launch our crowdfunding campaign as a sample of our future work. Afterwards, it will be available for free so prospective writers and artists can see what we’re about—we want to take down a the barricade of writers having to purchase subscriptions to every magazine they’re interested in contributing to, and this is where that project starts.
