Latest contributor testimonial


Matt Forrest Esenwine, Contributor
"I first heard of Halcyon Magazine when a fellow writing critique-group partner told me he had a poem published in it. When I took a look at the online edition, I was impressed with how colourful and vibrant the magazine was – nothing at all how I’d imagined..."

Calling for submissions


The summer issue is online. Check it out under the "2014" tab.

Summer is approaching. For some people, the season conjures up negative emotions and images of suffocating heat, sweat, and sunburned skin. But let's not think of that; let's look at the positive aspects. After all, my mission in creating this magazine is to stimulate and engage the senses of the reader by helping them see the beauty in each season.

I am calling for submissions from writers who can transport the reader to pristine beaches, still waters, quiet walks--well, you get the idea. You can do it through stories, poems, nonfiction articles, essays, haikus, or other forms. I want to feel the heat rise from the page. I want to hear the children laugh as they make sandcastles on the beach. I want to taste the barbeque sauce on the steak that's hot off the grill.

I look forward to seeing your sizzling submissions. See the guidelines here.

Calling for spring submissions

* The spring issue is online *

Spring is coming--the applause is deafening! It's been a remarkable record-breaking winter. But the good thing about the winter is that it only lasts for three months. By the time the spring issue arrives, the raging winds will have calmed down. The chattering brooks will flow. And the seasonal palette will change from shades of gray to colorful splashes of blues, greens, and reds.
I am looking for writers to express the warmth and life of spring through haiku, poetry, fiction, nonfiction, recipes and quotes. Acceptable themes include St Patricks Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, forgiveness, new love, and birth. Check out the writers guidelines here.
