Her Royal Majesty

Her Royal Majesty was an international literary and arts review I founded in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 2008. Over its six years and thirteen issues, it grew from a zine designed to serve the local community into an international magazine, publishing established as well as emerging authors and artists.

In 2012, I obtained the rights to the first ever story by Alice Munro: The Dimensions of a Shadow. You can read more about that in The Paris Review, and you can find the story here. We also published people like James Franco, former poet laureate Robert Hass, and so many more. You can browse through the archives (all the issues are now available for free), and take a look at the blog, which published interviews, reviews, audio poems and more.

To launch each issue, we organized a series of international parties: take a look at some of the photos, from Toronto to Paris to Berlin.
