Hamilton Arts and Letters publishes a biannual magazine presenting new literary works, graphic novel excerpts, exploratory writing, poetry, literary non-fiction, and the work of visual, audio, and film artists. In addition, we encourage the development of emerging writers and artists by giving them exposure in our publication.
HA&L is operated by a collective who are dedicated to producing a high-quality arts and letters publication, and are committed to supporting an innovative and burgeoning arts community. Founded by Paul Lisson, Fiona Kinsella, and Peter Stevens. Dear Peter left us in 2015 (1963-2015).
HA&L is funded in part by Government Agencies, Private Foundations, Members & Donors, Sponsors, and Advertisers, as well as Open Access Subscription.
HA&L acts as recommender for the Ontario Arts Council Writers’ Reserve grant program.
HA&L is a co-founder of the Short Works Prize for Hamilton area authors.
