At carte blanche we believe there is more than one way to tell a story, and it is our mandate to provide a venue for narrative of all forms, from fiction and poetry, to photo essay and graphic fiction.

We believe in the potential of story to help us make sense of the world around us and we continue to seek out and encourage new voices that are bringing the power of literature to bear on the personal and public experiences that shape our lives. As a Quebec-based journal, our goal is to cross-promote writing from the province with work from the rest of Canada and around the world.

carte blanche is a volunteer, not-for-profit project published by the Quebec Writers’ Federation, with support from the Canada Council for the Arts and individual sponsors.

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts which last year invested $20.1 million in writing and publishing throughout Canada.

Nous remercions de son soutien le Conseil des Arts du Canada, qui a investi 20,1 millions de dollars l’an dernier dans les lettres et l’édition à travers le Canada.
