Brick features literary nonfiction about arts and culture: book reviews, personal essays, memoirs, interviews and letters. That’s you: Essayists and Memoirists.
For today’s place to submit, I was looking for something fun. Excited to find Brick.
Brick has been called many things: an “anthology of enthusiasms” (Michael Ondaatje), “the best literary publication in North America” (Annie Proulx), and “more fun than any other literary magazine around” (Robert Hass). Brick is where the world’s best-loved writers have wide, lively, personal discussions about art, culture, and the written word.
Brick was founded in London, Ontario, in 1977 by Stan Dragland and Jean McKay. From 1985 until 2013, Michael Ondaatje led the magazine and helped to establish its international reputation, leaving a legacy of intellectual curiosity and passion for the written word.
Brick’s mandate: to create a beautiful product filled with the most invigorating and challenging literary essays, interviews, memoirs, travelogues, belles lettres, and unusual musings we can get our hands on.
Brick is published twice a year and distributed to bookstores worldwide.
Brick accepts unsolicited manuscripts of non-fiction only: book reviews, personal essays, memoirs, interviews.

“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
