The Review features poetry, fiction, reviews and critical articles
from all parts of Canada, the US and overseas,
using original graphics to enliven the format.
We are a creative literary quarterly that publishes poetry, fiction, critical articles, and reviews. We consider stories, poetry, and essays from anywhere — original or in translation — but we consider it our mandate to encourage and publish new and emerging Canadian writers with special consideration for those writers from the Atlantic region who might otherwise go unrecognized. By situating regional authors within the context of a national/international matrix, we hope to give the other parts of Canada the opportunity to enjoy and learn from the insights and ethos of Atlantic Canada. Quality is always the primary objective for TAR. We continue to consider poetry to be a central component of our journal, along with fiction, but we also attempt to locate and publish critical articles on a wide range of topics. Our ideal reader has extensive interests and seeks the creative. Major accomplishments of TAR include giving a voice to emerging writers in Atlantic Canada and across Canada, and actively encouraging new writers with our poetry contests. Bringing the work of well-known authors to readers and continuing with international work in translation are also among our major accomplishments.
