The Spectatorial Is Having A LAUNCH PARTY!



Come out for a fun night of readings and mingling in the Debates Room of Hart House, and support your fellow U of T students and community members! Help us celebrate the launch of our first-ever magazine: a special edition literary and academic volume with a focus on diversity in Canadian identity and culture. The magazine features original works of speculative fiction, poetry, nonfiction, graphic fiction, and artwork.

Everyone is welcome, and the magazines will be PWYC (pay-what-you-can). There will also be raffles for exciting book prizes!

You’ll also have the chance to learn how you can get more involved with The Spec, and our editors will be around to chat with if you’d like to discuss what kind of work we’re interested in publishing in our upcoming volume (see our submissions event page for more details HERE. If you’re a first year interested in applying to our editorial board (which you can learn about here), we heavily encourage you join us and get to know the staff!

We can’t wait to see you there!
