NEW ISSUE! - Vallum 12:1 "SURRENDER" is available now!
There are many ways in which surrender manifests: joy, despair, a willingness to give up one’s “totality” for someone or something other than ourselves.

"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."
