Prism International (styled PRISM international) is a magazine published quarterly in Vancouver, British Columbia.[1] Established in 1959,[2] it is Western Canada's senior literary magazine.[1][3] The magazine was started with name Prism and five years later its name changed to Prism International.[4] The focus of the magazine is contemporary fiction and poetry, but it also publishes drama and creative non-fiction.[1]

The rendering of the name is idiosyncratic: "PRISM" is intentionally all upper-case, and "international" is all lower case.[citation needed]
