About carte blanche

carte blanche is just that.

It's where writers can sound off, send up, amuse, follow their muse, versify, sketch, snap, dramatize, think big, get famous, get back at their exes, polish, perish, and above all publish.

carte blanche is published online twice a year.

carte blanche has a new friend! We are happy to announce our new publishing partner, CellStories.net. Get your daily dose of literary awesome on your iPhone, iPad, Droid, Blackberry or any other mobile device. All fiction and nonfiction submissions to carte blanche are eligible to be submitted for consideration to CellStories.

The 3Macs carte blanche Prize is awarded once a year in recognition of an outstanding submission by a Quebec writer. The prize is sponsored by Mark Gallop, of MacDougall, MacDougall & MacTier Inc.
