About the Authors

The Daughter's Grimoire is a shared labo(u)r of love by photographer Jamie Thompson and fiction writer Max Scheinin. It's our second collaboration: the first was The Junction Trio, a chamber-music ensemble that performed and recorded in and around Toronto from 2009 until 2019. TJT featured Thompson on flute, Scheinin on violin (for three years), and Lucas Tensen on cello. Together, we presented underground classical shows that were partly traditional and partly cutting-edge/non-classical: improvising on pitched-percussion instruments and shakuhachi flute, sharing the stage with rappers, taking on Radiohead songs. We were as likely to play formal concerts outdoors as in ticketed venues; and after hours, we snuck into abandoned ballrooms and factories midway through the demolition process, to explore unusual acoustic spaces.

The Daughter's Grimoire

The same spirit of classicism and eclecticism informs us as we undertake this collaboration in online publishing. And as before, our destination is unknown. We are setting out on a quest: how do we discover the place in our imagination that is both ancient and new, collective and individual?

The Daughter's Grimoire will be published quarterly, and each issue will be self-contained—a set of creative responses to a particular mythopoeic image or theme; a series of branching trails departing from and arriving at a common point.

Between issues, we will blog. The Daily Grimoire is canon, but its content may be less polished—spontaneous pieces that provide a broader context for what you read in the magazine.

Welcome to The Daughter's Grimoire.
