Spring 2017 edition coming soon

We’re excited to let you know that the Spring 2017 edition of Blood &a Bourbon is coming together now and should be headed to the printers in about two weeks time.  Thanks again to everyone who contributed to this edition – we cannot wait to show you all the great material that we have been able to gather together!

Spring 2017 Edition Closed for Submissions

Thanks to everyone who submitted material for the Spring 2017 edition.  We have some really exciting new material that we cannot wait to publish in April.  We will again host a launch party when the new edition arrives from the printers, so watch this space to find out the details

Accepting Submissions – Spring 2017

With the launch of our inaugural edition in October fading into the past, we are beginning to prepare the next edition for Spring 2017.  This one has a theme – “Misadventure.”

We will be accepting submissions up to 28 February, 2017 – go to our submissions page to find out more.

And remember – every word you type is a bullet in the heart of the publishing autocracy that tries to keep good writers down!

First Edition Launch Party

We are holding a long awaited launch party for our inaugural edition!

The event will be held on Thursday, 20 October 2016, at 6PM.  The venue we have selected is an awesome, fully accessible one – 3030 Dundas West (www.3030dundaswest.com).

Come and meet the contributors to the first edition, chat with the editors about what you want to write for the next edition, or just hang out with a bunch of really cool and literate folks.


Blood & Bourbon is a new Canadian journal. We’re here to celebrate all things hard, gritty, and raw. True or not-so-true, all we care about is a good story. The kind you tell over too many drinks, too late on a worknight, too far down the street on the other side of town. Keep an eye on this space for our inaugural edition in Spring 2016. Watch out, CanLit – here we come.
