One-Two Punch Book Pitch 

Do you have a great book idea? Live on our mainstage in front of a crowing crowd, you get two minutes to pitch your book to our panel of judges. They get one minute each to tell you why you’ll never get published in a million billion years (or why they want to see your manuscript in their in-box asap!). BookThug Managing Editor Jenny Sampirisi and Joyland Editor Emily Schultz join writer Hal Niedzviecki as on-stage judges. Participants can register in advance at the Canzine website or just show up day of (space permitting).
Canzine is made possible by grants from the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts. Canzine is supported by the following most excellent sponsors: Tightrope Books, Magazines Canada, Mint Records, Open Book Toronto, Guerilla Printing, Invisible Publishing, City of Craft, Book Thug, Coach House Books, CIUT 89.5, and Now Magazine. 

Canzine is an annual event organized by
Broken Pencil, the Magazine of Zine Culture and the Independent Arts.
