Taddle Creek hasn't added a story.
“Alice Munro published early work there.” —Misinformed Taddle Creek social media follower.
Taddle Creek is calling it a day this fall, after 25 years and 50 issues. So many memories ... But memories are ephemeral and don’t look so hot on a bookshelf. Solution: The Taddle Creek Book!
Now you can remember your favourite magazine forever, with this 352-page hardcover collection of fiction, poetry, features, and comics (not to mention a grammar rant or two), featuring 32 pages of colour comics, a cover by Hartley Lin, and original endpapers by Matthew Daley.
The Taddle Creek Book contains 70 pieces by almost as many authors, including Suzanne Alyssa Andrew, Sonja Ahlers, Gary Barwin, Cedar Bowers, Chris Chambers, Evie Christie, Michael Christie, Kevin Connolly, Lynn Crosbie, Andrew Daley, Peter Darbyshire, John Degen, Alfred Holden, Jasper Jubenvill, Dave Lapp, Hartley Lin, Derek McCormack, Joe Ollmann, Stuart Ross, Noah Van Sciver, Walter Scott, Fiona Smyth, R. M. Vaughan, Maurice Vellekoop, Emily Pohl-Weary, Adrienne Weiss, Jessica Westhead, Lindsay Zier-Vogel, and many more of your favourites from the magazine’s pages. Plus: a forward by Taddle Creek!
Such a lavish collection isn’t cheap to produce, and, for once, taxpayer-funded grants, sadly, are not an option. The Taddle Creek Book can only become a reality with your help. Be a hero and help to fund The Taddle Creek Book today. (Not a fireman or astronaut type of hero, but a hero nonetheless.)
Along with receiving a copy of the book in return for your support, you’ll also be entered in a draw for one of several prizes, including three complete collections of the magazine and several autographed book bundles.
Don’t miss this final chance to show Taddle Creek how much you care!
- A pledge of $39 gets you one copy of The Taddle Creek Book—a 352-page hardcover, featuring work by 70 Taddle Creek contributors, spanning the years 1997 to 2022. Plus: 32 pages of colour comics, a cover by Hartley Lin, and original endpapers by Matthew Daley.
- Every purchase or financial contribution of more than $39 enters you in a draw for one of two prizes: a complete collection of Taddle Creek Nos. 1–50 (three sets to be won) or a bundle of three autographed books—Wild Mouse, by Derek McCormack and Chris Chambers; Lake Where No One Swims, by Chris Chambers; and Children of the Atom, by Dave Lapp—and a copy of The Collected Neil the Horse, by Arn Saba (Katherine Collins) (10 book bundles to be won). Winners will receive their choice of prize in the order they are drawn.
- Please note: With supply chains as they are these days, The Taddle Creek Book may not ship until the beginning of 2023.

is a periodic compendium of invention and investigation; an
off-kilter balance of the witty and touching, the intelligent and
the insightful, featuring fiction, poetry, and thoughtful
explorations of the urban, along with sorry-but-not-sorry opinions
about grammar and style.”

“Taddle Creek is smart and funny and insightful and
sensitive. It’s a lot of other things as well.”
