OUR MISSION: to celebrate and champion the work of Canadian creatives, bringing exposure and support to artists across our great country.
blank spaces mission statement
WHAT ARE WE? We are an affordable, quarterly magazine, offering you the very best in Canadian talent with a specific focus on literary arts.

WHY DO WE EXIST? The world is big - so big it can feel like your voice is lost among all the noise. We want to strip things back. We want to edit away the stumbling blocks in your path. We dream of building a community in which diverse voices - your voice - can be heard.

A creative life can be a lonely life and while there is something romantic and hauntingly tragic about living out your days as a poetry-spilling hermit, the truth is, most creatives want to be appreciated in their time.

Is this your truth?

Blank Spaces has been created to give you a platform to be heard. Think of it as your own personal megaphone, broadcasting your message - your creation - to the world. We want to champion your art, whatever it may be, and share it with a literary world that is often dismissive of newcomers.

Never been published before? No problem! Don't have an agent? Who cares! 

We want you: the raw, real, true YOU!

If you are passionate, attentive, and wholeheartedly invested in your craft and in presenting your best face to the world, we want you on our team! Because that's what we are: a team. Whether you're from Newfoundland or the Yukon or anywhere in between. We are in this together. We are here to hold one another up.

Together, we will fill in the gaps with our heart-rendered stories and our colourful spirits.

If you've caught our vision and are inspired by our passion, we'd love to add your voice to our diverse spectrum. Learn how to submit here.
