Submissions for Online Publication


Genres and Guidelines

Purple Fire Publications is a small publishing company based out of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We are looking for intriguing editorials, short stories, poems, and book review submissions for online publication. Each submission should include only original photography and previously non-published works. There is no fee to submit your work, and you will be notified whether your work has been chosen or not. You will be compensated monetarily for your work. We request a limit of no more than 500 words per submission, which will be compensated at $0.07 CAD/per word for up to 500 words. We are open to longer submissions in the short story category. For more information about intellectual property rights as they pertain to your submission, please read our Terms & Conditions.

Submission Reading Period & Decisions

Purple Fire Publications will not make final decisions about which pieces to accept until rigorous contemplative conversation has occurred. Our process is to look at all the submissions as a whole and give each piece the full consideration it deserves. We thank you in advance for your patience.

Additionally, we may compile a periodical in print, which may feature your submission should it be accepted.

We do accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know as soon as possible if your work has been accepted elsewhere. We know wait times may take a while, and we don’t want to keep you from publishing your work elsewhere. If your work is accepted at another publication company or platform, we need to know the status of your submission so we can withdraw it. If your work is accepted elsewhere, please email
