A journal for the perpetuation of speculative fiction, genre fiction, folklore, and mythology. Our goal is to elaborate on the importance of the ‘untrue’ in modern society, and to create a space for the largest lies of literature.
– The Spectatorial‘s mission statement
The Spectatorial is the one and only genre journal at the University of Toronto. We’re in our fourth year, publishing works in both print and online.
We accept creative writing (both fiction and poetry), academic writing, graphic fiction and visual art so long as they apply to the concept of genre. For us, this includes science fiction, fantasy, horror, mythology, romance, etc., and all other odds and ends of the literary of the world. Our hope is to highlight the intelligence and beauty of properly crafted genre, and to create an environment that fosters creativity of all types.
