the collective

The Blasted Tree was founded in 2014 by Kyle Flemmer to further the aspiring and established authors and artists of Canada. Our name The Blasted Tree is derived from a variety of sources and is embodied by the image of a lightning-struck tree. We represent that which stands out from the crowd, a conduit for social alchemy and change. We believe in the magic of collaboration, free access to meaningful content, and the long-standing tradition of quality print publication.
