Canada, keep funding your Literary and Arts Magazines!

It is not official, but the Conservative government has been mumbling about cutting funding to all magazines under 5000 circulation. I personally think that is worth kicking up a fuss about. Current editor of The Malahat Review, an Arts and Literary magazine put out by the University of Victoria is making noise and has started a Facebook group which I strongly encourage you to join and support.

Further reading on this issue can be found at a fellow blog Biblioasis which is “a publishing house committed to the best fiction, poetry, criticism and non-fiction in beautiful editions”.

Keep reading, writing, painting or whatever art genre you love! Places for Writers is a great online list of places to start submitting!
