Note regular poetry submissions are closed until April 30, 2015 while we catch up on our current submissions.

Poetry Chapbook Contest submissions are open until April 1, 2015.

We are committed to paying writers and to keeping submissions FREE for all. But for those who can afford to donate, we would certainly appreciate your support.

If you like what we do and would like to donate to our journal, submit your poetry or fiction to the Donation Submission categories to make a $5.00 donation.

Donation submissions are treated the same as other submissions. The Rusty Toque is operated by volunteers. All money we receive goes to paying writers and to the administrative costs of running the journal.

Please note that we do not publish genre fiction.

Note to international submitters. Contributors are paid in Canadian dollars and funds are sent via PayPal or by Canadian cheque.

Thanks for your interest in The Rusty Toque.
