Arts & Literary Magazines Summit


(Formerly the Cultural Magazines Summit)

Magazines Canada’s Arts & Literary Magazines Summit is a full day of networking, workshops and discussion focused on developing your audience—at home and internationally.

If you work at an art, literary or other cultural magazine, the Arts & Literary Magazines Summit is your opportunity to meet with your peers in a comfortable setting that is all about YOU, YOUR magazines and YOUR challenges. There is no better place to network with cultural magazine colleagues from across Canada.

This annual event returns April 26, 2018 as part of MagNet: Canada’s Magazine Conference.
