The Journey began...




the Claremont Review was first published in 1992 by a team of masochistic editors who saw a need to provide young adult writers with a legitimate venue to display their work. We publish 120 pages of poems, short stories, short plays, graphic art, photography and interviews twice each year, spring and fall. Most of the work we publish is by Canadians, but we welcome submissions from 13-19 year olds from anywhere in the English speaking world. We have published writers from every province in Canada, nine U.S. states, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa. We take serious writers seriously.


The editorial staff run the Claremont Review on a volunteer basis and all of our editors are writers themselves. We not only publish successful writers, we encourage those working toward success. All submissions accompanied by a SASE (self-addressed, stamped envelope) receive a written comment on their work. Published works are often submitted several times, as writers and mentors discuss how to improve the work.


Since our inception we have published hundreds of literary and visual artists, many of whom have gone on to gain publishing credits elsewhere. In 1999 we were voted "Literary Magazine of the Year" by Write Magazine. In 2001 one of our published authors, Nick Melling, was included in Canada's Journey Prize Anthology, which publishes in book form the best published stories in Canada each year.
