Galleon Journal will soon become Galleon Publishing, and the journal (which is still in a kind of deep sleep) will move to a different section of the site. Galleon Publishing will focus on book-length manuscripts, primarly from Atlantic Canadian authors. As of now, six titles are set to be released.
After a couple of years of silence, of fiddling with time bubbles (exploding them all) and financials (?), we’re moving the journal from print to online. All contributors to the perpetually-forthcoming Issue VI will be part of our first online issue, slated for Dec 1, 2020.
We are now taking submissions solely for our next issue, which will feature prose and poetry featuring either New Brunswick (Canada) authors, or work that has New Brunswick in the focus. Deadline is December 15, 2017.
Work already submitted and which doesn’t have an NB theme, will be considered for issue VII .
We’re packing up and mailing to subscribers and contributors and planning a launch (soon). Meanwhile, copies are available online here.
But we have twice the content of past issues. Here’s the cover and contributor list for the 160 page Galleon V.
Launch date soon (delayed due to a venue flood).
Thank you to everyone who submitted to this issue. If we failed to respond promptly (or at all), we apologize.
We are having a pack em’ up party. Watch your mailboxes.
With the first shipment of Galleon IV having arrived, we now encourage submissions for issue V. Per usual, we are looking for original fiction and poetry as well as book reviews. Our mandate is to publish work by Atlantic Canadians or work related to Atlantic Canada, but we are flexible and there certainly is room for work ‘from away.’ For book reviews, please contact us first. Deadline is May 1, 2016.
After delays, many having to do with Galleon’s editor’s (and designer’s) work-schedule and the crappy Canadian dollar (printing costs), we’ll be launching again shortly. Watch for it.
Final decisions for Galleon IV are being made this week. It’s a lot to read – we doubled our submission numbers from the previous issue – but we have added a new editor (Kayla Geitzler) to our editorial cloud. Thank you to all who submitted. Keep spreading the word.
