To bring readers around the world the widest and most galvanizing exploration of the arts possible, Brick relies on the generous support of individual donors.

Join the stalwart donors on our Brick Wall by selecting a donation amount from one of the tiers below. Or, become a Monthly Sustainer: with a gift of $10 or more a month, you can help provide much needed stability so we can grow and thrive and keep making this magazine we love so dearly.

Brick is on its own, a constantly surprising and exciting gathering of literary and visual talents from every direction. I know of no more vital and original literary journal anywhere.

— W. S. Merwin

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 25% 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 send beautiful new issues of Brick to readers around the world. Donations directly support the creation of Brick, helping 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.

Because Brick does not have charitable status, we are unable to issue tax receipts.
