Since its inception in 2000, Vallum has been a vital and essential voice in contemporary poetry. Our pages regularly feature emerging and established poets and critics, making it a platform that both launches careers and furthers poetic discourse.

But we can't do it alone.

Magazine sales and subscriptions don't even begin to cover the costs of production, so we are asking you - our reader, friend, contributor – to make a donation.

Here's the best part: Every $1 of your donation becomes $3.

How? This year Vallum has been approved for the Quebec Government Mécénat Placements Culture program, administered by the Conseil des arts et lettres du Quebec. This program will match every donation made to Vallum at 300%, a part of which will be invested and returned after a 10-year period. Help us seize this amazing opportunity by donating what you are able. Every dollar counts (and is tripled!).

In 2016, your donations helped make possible:

  • Gold National Magazine Award for David McGimpsey's poem "The High Road" in issue 12:2.

  • Honourable Mention from the Canadian Cover Awards for Best Cover Design, issue 12:1.

  • Pushcart Prize win for Nicole Brossard's poem "A Tilt in the Wondering" in issue 11:2.

  • Honourable Mention from the Expozine Alternative Press Awards for Best Book, issue 12:1.

  • 25 workshops for underserved communities in Montreal as a part of our Poetry For Our Future! outreach program.

We will reward your generosity with a charitable tax receipt and a mention on our donor page (if desired). Your contribution makes it possible not only for Vallum to continue publishing, but for poetry to continue to flourish far into the future.

Charitable number 89251 5008 RR0001.
