Room is Canada’s oldest feminist literary journal, and has published work by writers and artists who identify as women or genderqueer for forty years. Room showcases fiction, poetry, reviews, art work, interviews and profiles about the female experience. The editors at Room believe in publishing emerging writers alongside established authors, and because of this, approximately 90% of the work published in Room comes from unsolicited submissions or contest entries.
Work that originally appeared in Room has been anthologized in The Journey Prize Anthology, Best Canadian Poetry, Best Canadian Stories, and Best Canadian Essays, and has been nominated for National Magazine Awards.
