Brick, A Literary Journal

Archived since Issue 1 Complete Archive

102 issues

Brick is an international literary journal published twice a year out of Toronto. With a focus on literary non-fiction—and a willingness to stray when our hearts are taken—the magazine prizes the personal voice and celebrates life, art, and the written word with the most invigorating and challenging essays, interviews, translations, memoirs, belles lettres, and unusual musings we can get our hands on. Founded in 1977, Brick has featured such heavyweights as John Berger, Elena Ferrante, Margaret Atwood, Zadie Smith, John Irving, and Louise Erdrich. As much a feast for the eyes as it is for the mind, Brick regularly features art and photographic inserts and has been widely praised for its design.
