from the Publisher of

The Rusty Toque

& the Toronto Editor of

Joyland: a hub for short fiction


The Rusty Toque is an online literary magazine that publishes fiction, poetry, film, visual art, reviews, and interviews.

Based on the idea that fiction is an international movement supported by local communities Joyland is a literary magazine that selects stories regionally. Our editors work with authors connected to locales across North America, including New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto as well as places underrepresented in cultural media.
