FAQ for New and Would-Be Publishers


1. How do I find writers?

Attend industry events (e.g. Word on the Street), place a listing in the annual Writer’s Market, place advertisements (for instance in other magazines), consult writers’ associations (such as PWAC), and network. Read widely for writing that you enjoy and don’t discount the power of CARD (Canadian Advertising Rates and Data) as a resource that writers consult. The Editors Association of Canada and the Writers Union of Canada also have searchable databases of editors and writers available to the public.
