About WordWorks

We publish three full-colour issues per year. Each issue goes out to Federation of BC Writers members as well as to schools, libraries, businesses, and other organizations across BC and Yukon. We are always striving to increase our readership and the reach of our stories.

WordWorks Welcomes Diverse Storytellers

WordWorks strives to serve all BC and Yukon writers by publishing articles which reflect diverse experiences. We celebrate submissions from underrepresented communities and are actively seeking contributions from writers of all races, genders, sexualities, abilities, neurodiversities, religions, socioeconomic statuses, or immigration statuses. We encourage submissions from both published and emerging writers. We believe our strength as a community is in the breadth of our stories.

We prioritize submissions from FBCW members but welcome submissions from all BC and Yukon writers.

Simultaneous Submissions

We encourage simultaneous submissions. Please let us know as soon as possible if another journal accepts your work for publication.

Rates & Reprints

WordWorks pays $125 per page for original articles, paid upon publication. Articles range from 500 words for one page to 1,100 words for a two-page spread. We will consider longer features as well. These rates are subject to change in future issues.
