Journal Brick, A Literary Journal

Brick is an international literary magazine based in Toronto, Canada, and edited by Michael Redhill, Linda Spalding, Michael Helm, Rebecca Silver Slayter, Laurie D Graham, and Martha Sharpe. Published twice a year, the magazine is a beautifully produced keepsake filled with essays, interviews, memoirs, travelogues, belles lettres, and casual, idiosyncratic ephemera that can only be described as “Bricky.”

Journal Broad Street

Broad Street is an interdisciplinary non-profit magazine featuring the very best that creative non-fiction has to offer in an ever-expanding set of subgenres. At Broad Street, we are creating an intersection where truth-telling prose, poetry, and artwork can converge to be enjoyed by readers and writers deeply engaged with the culture, though not necessarily through an academic lens. Your smart best friend should enjoy Broad Street as much as your theory-steeped professorial colleagues.
