About Of Rust and Glass

Of Rust and Glass was started, like many things, out of passion; something was missing. Then, a single bright light in a dark room flicked on. An idea was born. It was founded as a bridge over troubled waters for Northwest Ohio creatives, as a jumping off point into a future of successful, fulfilling, and passionate pursuit of artistic expression. It is a community for everyone, no matter who they are or where they come from. It is a dream made reality. 

In short, Of Rust and Glass is a collaborative place for writers, artists, musicians, photographers, videographers, and everyone in between to not only submit their work for publication but also become part of a greater creative family. Finding a group to share and grow as a creative is now only one click away.

In addition, it is the hope of everyone involved to be able to improve the community through both our publication and through various outreach initiatives. Art is a life-saver for many people. It can also be a life-saver for the whole community. As Of Rust and Glass grows, so does our opportunity to give back through improving mental health services, assisting families in need, cleaning up our neighborhoods, and more.

Of Rust and Glass seeks to publish, and polish, the works of the vast and talented members of the Toledo area.


Quarterly, an electronic publication is released. Within its pages, the e-zine features original stories, nonfiction pieces, digital prints, biographical snapshots of featured contributors, and much, much more. The main idea is that this publication is coordinated by Toledoans for Toledoans. 

Resources are available through the website and various social media outlets for both selected contributors and anyone interested in pursuing the creative arts. These resources include links to best practices and educational materials, interviews with established creatives, and the opportunity to interact as a community via social media and other scheduled events.
