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!
