THE GREAT CANADIAN GIVING CHALLENGE !

Until the end of June, Vallum’s online donations manager, Canada Helps, is running a contest called The Great Canadian Giving Challenge! This means for every dollar you donate towards Vallum before the end of the month, our charity will be entered to win a grand prize of $10,000!

As further incentive, this year VSEAL continues its partnership with the Quebec Government Mécénat Placements Culture program, administered by the Conseil des arts et lettres du Quebec, which matches every donation made to Vallum before September 30, 2016 at 300%! From the 3-to-1 matched funds, 70% will be available directly to VSEAL through the Conseil des arts et lettres du Quebec after two years. The remaining 30%, to be invested over a 10-year period at a community foundation, will then be returned to VSEAL.

With these resources, we would be able to grow the number of workshops we offer, expand our reach outside of Montreal, and build our website as a hub and publishing resource for our workshop participants!
 
Click HERE to make a donation to Vallum by June 30th and help Vallum win $10,000! No amount is too small, and is gratefully appreciated! Every donation will go directly towards funding poetry and literacy outreach in our community!

ANNOUNCING VALLUM'S PICTOGRAM POEM GAME !


















In conjunction with our annual poetry contest, the Vallum Award for Poetry 2016, we are offering a chance to enter the contest for FREE! The catch is you have to be the first person to guess the title and author of the poem.

How it works:

Every week we will add pictures to stand in for specific words to help solve the poem. Once you think you know, email us the answer at info@vallummag.com. Be careful, you only get one guess, so use it wisely! The final pictogram poem clue will be revealed one week before the contest deadline.

DEADLINE for the Pictogram Poem Game: July 7th

DEADLINE for the Vallum Award for Poetry: July 15th

Reviews

"Surely there are words to encapsulate the whole of Vallum...an eclectic and colorful collection of original art, poetry, and essays that unravel the world from bizarre and fantastic perspectives ... a refreshing variety of style and range of voice."
- Utne Reader / Link to the full article

"What rewards and satisfies the most about the poems in Vallum is their use of language. I donít know how often Iíve read a journal containing poems of the same style that might have been written by the same poet. This is not true of Vallum where language is witty, startling, sardonic, obscene, often (and I canít believe Iím using this word) - lovely."
- Literary Magazine Review / Link to the full article

"Öestablishing this publication as one of the top poetry magazines in the country. The layout and design are fantastic, and the full-colour artwork is magnificent, both complementing the fabulous writing...a fabulous magazine, with the quality of a fine book."
- WORD

"This Canadian journal makes a bid to be international."
- Bloomsbury Review

"Vallum's mix of poetry, prose, and visual art is audacious and exciting.... If the vigorous writing in this journal is any indication it's only a matter of time before the world catches on... This new magazine has a beautiful artistic look and feel."
- The New Pages Literary Magazine Stand

"An impressive lineup of poets."
- The Montreal Mirror

"Beautifully printed and not a little self-willed."
- Literary Magazine Review

"Vallum is passionate, ethereal, realistic and provocative, responding to change and movement of time, raising questions of the reader and proffering various solutions."
- Incwriters Society
