Our Back Pages

The Malahat Review, founded in 1967, has a storied past, and it’s one we’d like to share with you. Following the success of our 50 Issues Project, in which we highlighted select back issues in honour of the University of Victoria’s 50th anniversary, we decided to cast our gaze back, chronologically, over our complete backlist…to include (eventually!) brief reviews of every issue not previously covered.

Every two weeks, Our Back Pages will showcase an issue from our archive on The Malahat’s website, with brief but informative descriptions of the issue’s contents, notable contributors, prizes won, and any other tidbits of information we might glean.

As before, issue reviews will be written and signed by members of the Malahat Review’s extended family, including staff and volunteers, University of Victoria students, staff, alumni, faculty, and passionate readers. If you’re interested in writing a profile of an as-yet-unassigned issue, please email us at malahat@uvic.ca

If you’re interested in obtaining one of the issues profiled, most are available for sale. Please note prices will vary, depending on how long ago an issue was published as well as its scarcity. Pay online or send us your payment by regular mail. Contact us to order if pricing does not appear on our website.

50 Issues Project - Featured Issues

To celebrate the University of Victoria’s 50th anniversary in 2012–13, The Malahat Review has highlighted 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.

Issue 1Over the course of 50 weeks, the Malahat showcased one issue on its website with an informative thumbnail description of its contents. Discoveries no doubt will abound:

  • Early work by contributors who would later be counted among Canada’s and the world’s most famous authors
  • Poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction that went on to win national and international awards for magazine writing
  • Interesting essays and other articles on subjects as diverse as George Orwell, Austrian poets, and, yes, Margaret Atwood

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.

Issue 8Each 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 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.
