About Us

Founded in 1991, the Literary Review of Canada is the country’s leading forum for discussion and debate about books, culture, politics, and ideas. We run lively, expert reviews and essays by thought-provoking writers. We also proudly publish original poetry and illustrations in every issue.

Past contributors include the likes of Peter C. Newman, John Ralston Saul, Tom Flanagan, Charlotte Gray, Erna Paris, Rawi Hage, Linda Hutcheon, Joan Barfoot, Ian Hacking, Andrew Coyne, Richard Lipsey, Lawrence Hill, Jennifer Welsh, and Conrad Black. We invite prospective writers from across Canada to contact us.

The LRC is published by the Literary Review of Canada Charitable Organization (no. 848431490RR0001).
