Brick is an unpredictable, original, yet reliable feast which I’ve enjoyed year after year. Nobody who cares about books or life could be disappointed in it.

— Alice Munro

Brick has been publishing vibrant, invigorating, passionate writing since 1977, and with your help, we can keep at it for years to come.

Subscription sales and other earned revenue cover only 20% of our annual budget; along with the crucial support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council, your donations make it possible for us to publish the very best writing on culture, literature, and the arts, year after year, and to send beautiful new issues of Brick to readers around the world. Donations directly support the creation of Brick, helping to cover writers’ and artists’ fees, design and editorial work, printing and mailing costs, and operational expenses.

Your contribution will make a meaningful difference for Brick, and we’re profoundly grateful for your help.
