Submission Guidelines

Thimbleberry accepts short fiction, creative non-fiction, cultural commentary, poetry, literary and art reviews, as well as photographic portfolios.

Thimbleberry prefers that submissions be preceded by specific query letters, outlining the proposed piece. Exhibition review proposals should include a small selection of images and any pertinent information about the exhibition or artist(s). All inquiries should be emailed to

Please send visual art portfolio proposals for the magazine to George Harris at

The best guide for understanding the content of the magazine – its style, format, length and editorial range – can be found in the magazine itself. The one obvious guideline is the magazine’s focus on Northern BC art and culture; pieces that have no connection to the region will not be considered. While there are no deadlines for submissions, it is useful to keep in mind that we publish biannually in the spring and fall of each year. Thimbleberry will only consider previously unpublished material.

Thimbleberry is committed to representing Northern BC’s diversity, so welcomes previously under-represented writer/artist groups and communities; First Nations, writer/artists of colour, LGBTQ2S, writer/artists with disabilities, and women are encouraged to submit work.
