To celebrate the University of Victoria’s 50th anniversary in 2012–13, The Malahat Review is highlighting 50 of the finest issues from its backlist, which stretches back to January 1967. The magazine is almost as old (and mature) as the university.
Once a week for 50 weeks, the magazine will showcase one of these issues on its website with an informative thumbnail description of its contents. Discoveries no doubt will abound:
The possibility for surprise is no doubt endless—as is the inevitability of becoming reacquainted with a poem or short story that you may even have read when it first appeared in the magazine.
Each of the 50 Issues Project profiles is written and signed by members of the extended Malahat Review family, including staff and volunteers, University of Victoria students and alumni, faculty, and passionate readers of the magazine from off campus. If you’re interested in writing a profile of an as-of-yet unassigned issue, don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re interested in reading one of the issues most of them are available for sale. Please note prices will vary, depending on how long ago an issue was published as well as its scarcity. Contact us to order if pricing is not available on our website.
