NEW ISSUE! - Vallum 14:1 "Evolution" is now on news stands!
This issue includes a wide spectrum of poems—by Erín Moure, Phil Hall, Sonnet L’Abbé, George Elliott Clarke, Shane Book, and others—interpreting the theme scientifically, personally, linguistically, futuristically, among other surprising angles. This issue also features reviews of Alex Manley’s debut collection We Are All Just Animals & Plants, Laura Broadbent’s In On the Great Joke, Rob Taylor’s The News, and A.F. Moritz writes on Brian Campbell’s Shimmer Report. The digital edition boasts additional poetry content, audio recordings of the poems, an exclusive interview with Andy McGuire, and more.Artwork for this issue is from Jason deCaires Taylor. Creator of the world's first underwater sculpture park, Taylor uses pH neutral materials in his sculptures to promote coral growth.

"No matter what I read or what my response to what I read issue to issue, my sense of poetry's narrative and lyric parameters are broadened by reading Vallum."
"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."
"What rewards and satisfies the most about the poems in
Vallum is their use of language. I don’t know how often I’ve
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 can’t believe I’m using this word) - lovely."
"…establishing 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."
"This Canadian journal makes a bid to be international."
"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
"An impressive lineup of poets."
"Beautifully printed and not a little self-willed."
"Vallum is passionate, ethereal, realistic and provocative,
responding to change and movement of time, raising questions of
the reader and proffering various solutions."
