Submission guidelines have changed!

The Windsor Review is currently undergoing some changes as we dust around and try to clean things up. As you may have noticed, our site looks a tad bit different and as we shift things around, it may change even more in the future.

The header says it all. As part of our dusting process, we’ve tidied and updated our submission rules. Check it out at:

Any questions, feel free to drop us an email at

Keep writing!

Windsor ReView Submissions Now Closed

Sorry folks, submissions to theWindsor ReView are now closed until September 1, 2012.

Please hold off on submitting until this date, or your submissions will not be read or considered for publication (we don’t hang onto submissions from outside of our reading periods to consider for later, we delete / recycle them).

You will have a chance to submit to either the next general issue OR our next theme issue (stay tuned to find out what the theme will be!) starting September 1st.

Enjoy the summer, and look out in early September for our amazing Fall 2012 issue!

The FILTH issue has arrived!

That’s right, the Windsor ReView Spring 2012 Special Filth issue has arrived. Subscribers and contributors, expect your copies to arrive in the mail shortly! For everyone else, contact us at for information on subscribing or purchasing individual copies.

This issue features our complete re-design (let us know what you think)! We’re now a stylish 8×8 magazine, still with the same great prose, poetry, and full colour art features. This issue includes art from Zeke Moores, Swintak, Andrew Wright and Marcy Boles.

We also have writing from new and established writers from Canada and the United States, including David Zieroth, Henry Beissel, Bruce Meyer, Emily Schultz, Hollie Adams, April Bulmer and more! Edited by poet and comedian John Wing Jr., this issue is truly filthy.

If you’re in Windsor, check out John Wing Jr.’s reading at Phog Lounge (157 University Ave. West, Windsor, On.) on Tuesday, March 6th. We will have copies of the FILTH issues available, as well as additional readings from local contributors Vanessa Shields, Peter Hrastovec and kate hargreaves.
