Freaked out about the future?

One thing you can do to help secure an intelligent future is to subscribe to a Canadian magazine. Now. Right now.

Worried about the future of print journals and newspapers? Again, subscribe. Right now.

The world is what we make it. I don't know about you, but I like going to a book store and buying a magazine. Or having one arrive in the mail. Really, if you want the experience to continue. Make it so. Here's a plea from The Walrus

Support The Walrus! from The Walrus Magazine on Vimeo.

Subscribe to something. If you care about Canada you should probably have a subscription or two to This Magazine, or Geist, or Border Crossings...or literary journals like The Malahat Review, The New Quarterly, Open Letter...whatever you prefer, just support it.

That means you too my American friends. Come on, subscribe.

Oh, and if you already have a few subscriptions what about giving gift subscriptions? I'm all over that one.

good call. and not just Canadian mags. Though i do like the issues of Capilano Review i've read. They're on my "to subscribe when i get money like a grant or something" list.

Yes, The Cap Review is probably the most interesting journal in Canada at the moment. These things change. Kudos to them though.

I'm always on the lookout for places that publish work like mine (i think cap does - they've published Michele Leggott, who as a fellow New Zealander has been a formative influence on me). Do you know where people like Steve McCafferey and Karren Mac Cormack publish these days?
