It’s Official—We’re Clever: Broken Pencil’s Review of The Quilliad


We’re very excited to let our readers know that The Quilliad was reviewed in Broken Pencil! For those who haven’t heard of Broken Pencil, the publication is “the magazine of zine culture and the independent arts”. Scott Bryson reviewed our second issue, calling us “a cleverly-named litzine full of clever writing.” Poetry by Jessica Bebenek and Calista Michel and fiction by Shannon Campbell were described as “noteworthy”.

We couldn’t ask for a better review. To read it in full, check out the latest issue of Broken Pencil.

Broken Pencil issue with Quilliad review

Also, if you think clever writing (and, this time around, beautiful art) are your thing, come on out to our launch party and arts show for issue 3 on Saturday, June 7 at Betty’s on King, 240 King Street West, upstairs in the party room.

Hope to see you there,
Sarah Varnam,
editor-in-chief of The Quilliad


Launch/Art Show Date Correction


We’ve changed it on the original post, but it seemed worth mentioning that The Quilliad‘s Issue 3 Launch Party and Art Show will be on June 7, 2014 instead of May 30. It will still be happening at 7 p.m. at Betty’s (240 King Street, Toronto) on the upper floor.

Hope to see you there!
