Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Thimbleberry Magazine is a publication devoted to arts and culture in Northern BC. Thimbleberry Magazine celebrates Northern BC art and culture, including fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, visual art, and cultural commentary. It will publish original creative work and feature regular columnists who will document the cultural life of Northern BC. Like UNBCs mandate, Thimbleberry is committed to serving all of Northern BC’s regions, reflecting the cultural life of the place, whether it be urban or rural, mountain or coast, settler or indigenous, celebrating its energy and angst. Thimbleberry publishes short fiction, creative non-fiction, cultural commentary, poetry, literary and art reviews, as well as photographic portfolios. The one obvious guideline is the magazine’s focus on Northern BC art and culture; pieces that have no connection to the region will not be considered. Thimbleberry will only consider previously unpublished material. Thimbleberry is committed to representing Northern BC’s diversity, so welcomes previously under-represented writer/artist groups and communities; First Nations, writer/artists of colour, LGBTQ2S, writer/artists with disabilities, and women are encouraged to submit work.
