Call for Pitches
Published on November 22, 2017

The Montreal Review of Books is currently accepting pitches for 1200-word essays. The essay should engage with an aspect of writing or publishing in Quebec, past or present – the topic and angle are up to you, but the essay should go beyond reviewing a book into reflecting on a broader issue related to writing, reading, translation, and/or publishing. For examples of past essays, visit https://mtlreviewofbooks.ca/genres/essay/.

While timely topics are encouraged, pitches should take into account that we publish three times a year (March, July, November) and therefore proposed subjects should have enough of a shelf life to be relevant several months from now.

Please send proposals of no more than 250 words to
associate.editor@mtlreviewofbooks.ca/mrb by December 20th. Include the books and/or writers you would like to cover, a short bio, and links to two relevant writing samples. We pay competitive rates.
