Beside the Point 2019: Call for Submissions 

Themed Issue: Power

Writers and Artists! We want your work. 

Beside the Point is a creative writing journal produced at Camosun College in Victoria, BC. In our next issue, we explore the many facets of “power.” The plot of a story often hinges on a power struggle. In politics, power is said to corrupt. What does “power” mean to you? Does a blackout shroud your characters in darkness? Did developing personal power transform your life? From solar power to super powers, from loss of power to empowerment, we’d like to hear about it all. Please send us your stories, poems, creative essays, scripts, or comics. We seek a diversity of approaches and visions. Try us!
