From the Prism International guidelines:

PRISM international publishes exciting, original, literary material from established and emerging writers in Canada and around the world.
We accept submissions year-round. Due to the high volume of submissions we receive each month, reply times range between two to six months, depending on the time of year. A good deal of our content is generated from our annual fiction, poetry, short forms and creative non-fiction contests. Please visit our contest page for more details.

We strongly prefer online submissions, which must be submitted through Submittable, as we do not accept email submissions. We charge a $3.00 reading fee per submission. Writers for whom the $3.00 fee is prohibitive are welcome to contact us directly about alternative methods of submission.

Please submit to only one genre at a time, and await a reply before submitting again.
