Jaywalker free magazine of the arts was published monthly in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and is still available online at all times right here! We hope to get some version of it going again. For now, it is an archival site only.


Check out our old publisher's new blog, The Metaphor Observatory, with plenty of examples of contemporary metaphor in the media.

What is Jaywalker? Use your imagination...

Jaywalker is a free, monthly, submission-based magazine of the arts serving the Kingston, Ontario area. Our aim is to present all genres, including the literary, visual, material, stage and recorded arts. Jaywalker showcases and entertains, inspires and educates. It also intends to display the full experience spectrum of artists in our region, from student through teacher, amateur through professional.


The structure of Jaywalker includes a variety of reliable features, such as the ongoing question "But Is It Art?", a punnishingly sarcastic rendering of the Horoscopes (The Hors D'Scopes) or "Jam Makers", a series of home-cooked riffs. The events listings ("On The Town") are laid out in an easy to read format, and include such essentials as galleries, theatres, art tours and live music. Jaywalker's regular features provide a reliable home for submissions of poetry, music or artwork, to name a few.


It is our hope that those who appear on Jaywalker's pages find the recognition and encouragement needed to further their careers. Both "locals" and visitors to Kingston can look forward to a monthly snapshot of our diverse artistic community that they can take home and enjoy for years to come.


Submissions are juried, with a preference towards local pieces that clearly convey their message, demonstrate a unique style, print well (primarily in B&W) and require little or no editing. One is encouraged to submit several pieces at a time, preferably shorter and digitized, and in keeping with Jaywalker's general submission guidelines. Our magazine cannot pay for submissions at this time.


Jaywalker's circulation was 650 in February 2004, our eleventh issue, which could be found at galleries, libraries, coffee shops and stores in the Kingston area, and at several locations within Queen's University and St. Lawrence College. Though free in the Kingston area, Jaywalker naturally offers affordable subscriptions for those who would like a copy delivered to their home or office.


Our website, Jaywalker.ca includes both previous issues and additional material from each artist, as well as a comprehensive list of resources available in the Kingston area. As a fledgling publication, we are learning the ropes as we go, experimenting with various content and layout to best suit the needs of Jaywalker's readers. We hope for Jaywalker to be an escape from current affairs - a reliable and entertaining read that is inviting, stimulating and unique.
