Name of creator
The first issue of Dandelion appeared in 1975, and in 1979 Dandelion Magazine Society was incorporated to oversee the magazine’s publication. The magazine published innovative prose, poetry, and visual arts from writers and artists of local, national, and international renown until 2011. It was based in Calgary, Alberta.
Records were in the custody of former managing editor of Dandelion Magazine, Kathleen Brown, until their acquisition by Simon Fraser University Special Collections and Rare Books in 2013.
