The Wanderer Magazine's First Print Publication!

by Zosia Czarnecka in Edmonton

Business Plan

The Wanderer ( was started by a group of students from the University of Alberta in the summer of 2012. Since then, we have grown into the voice of Edmonton with over a thousand articles published to date. Our content includes cultural reviews of events and restaurants in the city, interviews with notable Edmontonians, creative writing and long-form journalism pieces in insight, politics, lifestyle and business. In all our content, we strive to show a new side of Edmonton. When we review a new cafe, we don't just comment on the food and drinks - we tell the story behind the name and layout of the cafe. Now when you walk in for your coffee, you'll feel more personally connected with the space. When we comment on an international event, we don't just bring you the facts - we tell you why you, as an Edmontonian, should care about this news. With everything we write, we try to bring Edmonton closer-together as a community and help small business owners get their stories told. 

Since its inception, The Wanderer has always been entirely volunteer-run. As we continue to grow the publication, we need your support. To celebrate our five-year anniversary, we are publishing our FIRST-EVER print publication! This magazine will not only celebrate The Wanderer, but also Edmonton as a whole. The publication will include:

  • Pieces from our archives
  • Newly commissioned articles
  • Hidden Edmonton restaurant reviews
  • 15 Edmontonians in the Spotlight (nominated by the community!)
  • A map of our favorite spots in the city
  • And much, much more!

Our hope is that this will be a book of Edmonton, that it will find itself on coffee tables, flipped through many, many times and enjoyed by all. The funds raised from this campaign will cover the costs of printing 1000 copies of this publication. Remaining funds will be used to host a launch party to celebrate printing and the rest will go towards hosting conferences and events to help up-and-coming writers and creatives and bring together the Edmonton community.
