I really cannot overstate the joy this publication brings me.

“Even in Newcastle, where I live, I have seen real human beings reading the Canary Press.”
— Sydney Review of Books
Not one of the stories in this magazine was actually about birds. Annoying.

 The inaugural issue of  The Canary Press

The inaugural issue of The Canary Press


The Canary Press was founded in 2013 on the back porch of a shared apartment, in an elaborate attempt to avoid doing the dishes. The magazine has become a crusade for the short story. We have published new and local writers alongside international luminaries, yelled author's names out of bus windows, delivered magazines on bicycles, and thrown some of the least dignified parties in the history of Australian literature.

You can order your own copy online, or find them in cafes, bookstores, airports and newsagents all over Australia.


Submissions

Due to our extended hiatus/hibernation/rebirth/ongoing destitution we are currently not reading any submissions. But we wish you and them (the stories) well!
