Message from The Fiddlehead

To help public health efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19, The Fiddlehead office is closed and we are currently operating at a reduced capacity. We will do our best to respond to queries, but please be patient.

There may be delays in receiving issue orders or subscription claims. There will be a delay with our Spring issue and with our special 75th anniversary issue, both of which were slated to be printed in April. We have cancelled planned events to celebrate our 75th anniversary and look forward to rescheduling them in the fall in Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg, St. John’s, and Fredericton.

The Fiddlehead wishes continued good health to everyone!

The Fiddlehead Supports Black and Indigenous Lives

The Fiddlehead recognizes the white supremacy at work in countries around the world, including Canada. We recognize its presence in literary culture, including our own organization, whose genre editors and staff are and have been predominantly white. We pledge to prioritize offering staff and editorial roles to Black, Indigenous and other equity-seeking people as these positions become available.

Rayanne Haines' Reading Recommendation

It is important to me to elevate the voices of female writers from my city. Voices that are rich, diverse and often lost in the shadows of larger cities like Vancouver and Toronto. In light of everything happening in the USA and around the world right now, it feels even more imperative to make sure I use this space to showcase a book from a Black author. This Is How We Disappear by Edmonton poet Titilope Sonuga is a book of raw beauty and fierce joy.
