A Bit About Us

Lemonspouting is a new quarterly Canadian and International online Journal of Literature & Art. For years it was a personal writing Twitter handle referring to ‘citrusy bursts of inspiration, to refresh the mind.’ We are looking for fresh, contemporary poetry, fiction, non-fiction, art, and photography from new and established writers, and artists. 

We are asking readers and contributors to consider donating to PATREON to help raise fees to cover costs to pay writers and artists, as well as the small costs of running the magazine. There is currently no submission fees.

We are currently closed for submissions. We will post our next submission opening on our HOME PAGE and our SUBMIT page. Please see our guidelines under SUBMIT.  

Writers and artists/photographers will receive the following MINIMUM payment for their work as follows. It is our goal to increase these rates in the future. 

Poetry $10 US per poem

Fiction $15 US per story

Non-Fiction $15 US per non-fiction piece

Photography & Art $$15 US per piece

Cartoons $15 US per piece

One Cover Art Piece $20 US (either a piece of art/or photo)

Lemonspouting is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion, and prioritizes submissions from writers and artists who identify with historically marginalized groups and underserved communities. First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples or Indigenous peoples of North America are strongly encouraged to submit as well as racialized people, persons with disabilities, and those who identity as 2SLGBTQ+.

Lemonspouting welcomes Canadian and International submissions in English.  If you require any accommodations during the submission process, please contact us.
