About Midinette
In April of 1937, a group of French-Canadian women spearheaded the fight for unionization within the garment industry, despite having been deemed “unorganizable” by male union leaders. They were called Midinettes, a portmanteau of the French “midi” (noon) and “dinette” (light lunch). The Midinettes laboured in, but did not become, or submit to, the Factory. 

Upcoming Featured content
In our inaugural issue we look at, and speak with, writers, thinkers and artists who detonate the assembly line and demand presence. We are confronted by potential futures and speculative fictions in 17776 by Jon Bois and The Tiger Flu by Larissa Lai. The radical words of Eileen Myles, Vivek Shraya, CAConrad, and Ottessa Moshfegh drive us from apathy and complicity and towards engagement. Look for posts to roll out around mid-March!

We do not accept creative submissions from current students of Concordia’s creative writing program, but we do invite pitches and queries for essays and reviews.
