Quills is published by William Byron Sheardown of Vancouver, British Columbia. Byron is a printer and has been publishing magazines since the age of 18. Quills Magazine comes from Byron’s deep love of poetry and his desire to create a national literary vehicle for which poets from all parts of Canada can unite to experience each others’ work. Whether young or old, professional or novice, the poets presented here will have the common element of being Canadian.


Canadian poets can submit their poems of Love and Eroticism only. It is privately funded, sold in bookstores all across Canada and accepts advertising of literary content only. Deadline for submissions changes from year to year, but we will announce submission deadlines with ample advance notice. We will publish when enough poems are received.
