Beside the Point

A journal of creative work published at Camosun College.

Writers and Artists! We want your work.

Beside the Point is a creative writing journal produced at Camosun College in Victoria, BC. For our next issue, we want to know: what does time mean to you? Is it linear? How does its passage affect us? What does it mean to be old? To be young? Is time kind? Cruel? Did it bring us to where we thought it would? We’d like to see these questions and more explored in stories, poems, creative essays, scripts, or comics. We seek a diversity of approaches and visions. Try us! Read the fine print at Author Guidelines.
