Slow print, small run, mighty and true, the non-profit West End Phoenix is a community newspaper dreamed up by writer and Rheostatic Dave Bidini, giving voice to the swirl of neighbourhoods that make up one of North America’s fastest evolving catchments.
Patron-supported and ad-free — and devoted to the magic and power of print — the Phoenix invites you to join the chorus of readers around the city as well as Canada’s best writers, photographers and illustrators as we produce a new monthly broadsheet for our times.

Beyond subscription, we are asking readers to support the paper in our attempt to pay writers, illustrators and photographers in the catchment a fair and equitable rate, an essential part of the West End Phoenix plan to sustain the voices of artists in our neighbourhoods.
