Introducing Broadsheet: A New Short Fiction Literary Journal

Broadsheet is a free literary magazine coming soon in print to the city of Toronto, and to the rest of the world online through a host of digital formats. Broadsheet will publish Canadian short fiction, a genre that will reach larger audiences than ever before given the journal's variety of viewing options and free distribution.

The project arose from the efforts of Humber College's Creative Book Publishing Program. Asked to envision a new publishing model, a group of students sought to combine the old-world charm of print with new digital reading platforms.

The publication was brought into being with contributions from the likes of Stuart McLean (of the radio and book series The Vinyl Café) and Kim Echlin (author of the Giller Prize shortlisted novel The Disappeared), as well as words of support from people across the publishing industry.

Broadsheet will makes its debut on Toronto streets and into electronic devices across Canada this year. For updates on Broadsheet’s progress, and to sign-up for their newsletter, you can follow them on Twitter and visit their blog, which was created to inform the Toronto literary community about the project in advance of the magazine itself.
