Call for Submissions: Canadian Folk Music
Canadian Folk Music is a quarterly magazine published by the Canadian Society for Traditional Music and is currently seeking submissions of articles, reviews, interviews, commentary, and other features on Canadian folk music and on ethnomusicological research in Canada.
There have been recent changes to the forthcoming issues, including several new columns. If you would like to submit a feature article, or one that would fit into the columns listed below, please contact the editor, Gillian Turnbull, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Notes From the Field
This is a short column, typically 2000-3000 words, documenting recent ethnomusicological fieldwork. Written in a diary/journal style, the purpose of the column is to introduce readers to the ongoing process of the writer’s experience in the field and possibly to some of the early findings made.
Graduate Student Profile
Graduate students (or their committee members) in any area of ethnomusicology are invited to submit a brief (500-1000 word) biography that details their research plan, any publications, and their course of study.
Unpublished interviews with a musician or member(s) of the folk/traditional music community are welcome.
Articles on any aspect of folk/traditional music-making in Canada, or on broader issues in ethnomusicology are also welcome. Feature articles are typically 4000-7000 words, and may include transcriptions, pictures, and other supporting documents. Since we have recently moved to an online format in addition to our printed version, supplementary materials such as videos and recordings that the author has obtained copyright clearance for are especially welcome.
Please visit our website to see our most recent issue and the archived issues from 2000 forward.
The Canadian Society for Traditional Music (formerly the Canadian Folk Music Society, established 1957) is dedicated to the study and promotion of musical traditions of all communities and cultures, in all their aspects. The scope of the society’s activities is intended to reflect the interests both of members who are ethnomusicologists and of members whose interests are mainly with traditional music and its contemporary counterparts, especially in Canada.
Canadian Folk Music/Musique folklorique canadienne is published quarterly by the Canadian Society for Traditional Music, and contains articles, notices, reviews and commentary on all aspects of Canadian folk music.
Readers are invited to submit articles, songs, notices, artwork and reviews of items with significant folk/roots music content and will be subject to review by the editor and possibly the editorial board. Unfortunately, Canadian Folk Music is not a paying market, being an impoverished arts organization, but we will provide you with copies of the publication and of course, glamour and notoriety. Unless otherwise indicated, all editorial matter, articles, translations, tune transcriptions and arrangements not in the public domain are copyright by the Canadian Society for Traditional Music. Authors are responsible for their own copyright clearances. Submissions should employ Chicago style, in a MS Word or .rtf file. Please write to email@example.com for details concerning submissions, and see our submission guide.
