The Nashwaak Review


The Nashwaak Review publishes original poetry, short fiction, travel pieces, essays, articles and reviews. We also reproduce photography and paintings in black and white. Our covers are by living Canadian artists and are reproduced in full colour.

Since our founding in 1994, we have been a venue for new and established artists, reviewers and critics throughout Canada. We list, among our contributors, such luminaries as the late Louis Dudek, David Adams Richards, Karen Connolly, Fred Cogswell, Stephen Heighton, George Elliot Clarke, Ann Copeland and Ken Norris.

Perhaps more importantly we have been an outlet for many promising young writers especially, but not exclusively, from Atlantic Canada. We like to claim that we are slightly different from most small Canadian magazines because of the nature of our travel section and because we accept essays and review books from disciplines other than literature. The Nashwaak Review is published twice yearly with the financial support of St. Thomas University.

You certainly have the best magazine in Canada by far.

–Louis Dudek


Current Issue

The new issue of The Nashwaak Review is now available HERE.


Its editor Professor Stewart Donovan is pleased to have collaborated with the Provincial Archives once more.


“This is the third time in the 25-year life of our magazine that we have collaborated with the Archives,” said Donovan, noting also how relevant and contemporary the theme of migrants to New Brunswick and Canada is at this time.


“Our memories tend to be short term, and most of us need to be reminded that we came to the ‘New World’ as migrants in search of a better life.”
