Scope and content

The Capilano Review (TCR) was founded in 1971 by Pierre Coupey at Capilano College in North Vancouver. Its first issue appeared in 1972. The series consists of records generated from the publishing activities of The Capilano Review when Coupey was the founding editor from 1971-1976; editor 1989-1991; assistant editor 1987-1989, 2002, to committee member and now as a Board member. TCR provides a forum for experimental contemporary writings and poetry from notable writers and poets along with publishing artworks by artists from Canada, the US and other countries. Along with publishing the magazine, TCR also conducts interviews and hosts workshops, talks and panel discussions. In 2015, TCR parted from Capilano University to become an independent literary, art and poetry magazine. Records include, but are not limited to the following: correspondence, artwork submissions, research articles, Curricula Vitae (CVs) and biographies, interview transcriptions, marked proofs, newspaper articles, hand written notes, postcards and greeting cards, administrative records (agendas, minutes, memos and letters) for the Koerner Foundation Lecture Series, submissions from writers such as Sharon Thesen, Michael Ondaatje, Bill Schermbrucker, George Bowering, Phyllis Webb, Duncan McNaughton, and Jack Spicer, and correspondence from writers/poets such as Robin Blaser, Brian Fawcett, bp Nichol, Fielding Dawson, Audrey Thomas, Susan Musgrave, Rick Jones, Brian Fisher, Stan Persky and Guy Montpetit.
