The Waggle is a new online magazine of engaged writing and the arts based in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada. We are committed to publishing interesting writing, visual art, and multi-media art from northwestern Canada and the world beyond.
Our name, The Waggle, is taken from the dance performed by honey bees. The dance is central to their communication, culture, and survival. The waggle-dance is performed centrally, within the hive, but provides information about the world beyond, and sends the bees off in new directions, so that every member of the hive can contribute.
Honey bees are essential to our survival. They’re also beautiful, intelligent, and productive. We publish work that reflects this spirit.
