Inside Popjournalism

Popjournalism is a pop culture magazine, targeting an educated Canadian audience. Our audience is comprised mainly of 25-to-44-year-olds.

We look for national and engaging local arts stories from across Canada and work with a team of writers from coast-to-coast. Our arts coverage topics include Indigenous arts, dance, literature, celebrities, journalism and advertising, social media, television, media and visual arts and video games.

We also have a growing criticism and review section and are actively soliciting fiction from new Canadian writers.

Currently, we reach over 1,000 daily visitors and generate nearly 50,000 monthly impressions. We also reach an international audience as a news source on Google News.
