Send us your poetry to be featured on our website — for McGill students and recent alumni.

We're now accepting submissions for our special Zine edition of Snaps!

Theme: Identity

When you think of identity, do you think of a specific person's? Your own, perhaps? Or do you think of a collective identity?

Perhaps you wonder about the identity of unknown, even unknowable beings. Maybe you attended our Identity workshop series on the self, the other, solitude or space, and decided to develop one of the pieces you wrote with us. Our upcoming Identity zine will explore it all. Submit your work by March 24, 2023!
