WAKE is aiming to be a bi-monthly print publication based out of Toronto, ON. An independent publication, WAKE strives to bring forth a new and inspired way of re-imagining the print medium featuring works by local and up-and-coming writers, artists, photographers and contributors.
WAKE is not strictly a zine, nor is it strictly a news publication - it's rather a healthy mix of both ideologies to create a wholly unique publication.

The writing will introduce readers to new, alternative ideas in everything from politics to the arts, a focus on the local effort put forth by those working to create something themselves. It will also give the writers a chance to hone their skills and find their own style through their writing, creating a tangible voice for readers to recognize and discuss.
Not only with there be thoughtful and interesting feature pieces, in each issue WAKE will offer:
  • short stories
  • poetry
  • opinion pieces
  • personal essays
  • "Discover", profiling new, under the radar musicians, artists, filmmakers, writers and organizations/collectives within Toronto
  • + more

Bringing artwork into the forefront is also important to WAKE. Featuring large, full-colour pages of artwork created by emerging artists and photographers, WAKE will become as much of an art collection as it is dedicated to the written form.

WAKE is forging partnerships with Current Sessions Productions, Young Inspirations, and Headquarters Cooperative - three other fantastic local, independent efforts dedicated to fostering the emergence of up-and-coming musicians.
You can see these names in issues of WAKE in the form of ads, upcoming events, and even content generated by those involved. Each issue will be sold at their events, including the official launch party on October 25th, the first WAKE+Current Sessions event.

Overall, WAKE needs YOU, the consumer.
This is first and foremost, a D.I.Y effort. Everything done for this publication is on an entirely volunteer basis by all contributors and editorial staff.
Therefore, printing costs will be the key financial need.
Money charged for each issue of WAKE will purely go back into the funds to continue printing future issues.

Thank you!
(You rock, don't ever change.)
