Leila Goreil and business partner Ashley Macdonald, are the founders, editors and writers behind MANUSCRIPT, a quarterly digital literary magazine completely devoted to books, authors, reading, literary news, fandom and more.

In creating MANUSCRIPT Magazine, Leila wanted to be able to fuse her passions for marketing, design and creative writing with her love for reading and books. Having originally created the concept for MANUSCRIPT Magazine back in high school, Leila uses her professional design and marketing skills to foster the creative and writing necessary to launch a literary digital magazine.

With no real magazine on the market for consumer readers or booklovers like Leila, she wanted to offer something to bibliophiles everywhere.

The first issue of MANUSCRIPT can be downloaded for free on their website January 1, 2019. You can find out more on their website, www.manuscriptmag.ca
