What is The Capilano Review?
TCR was founded in 1972 by Pierre Coupey at Capilano College in North Vancouver. Since then, its editors Bill Schermbrucker (1976-1982,) Ann Rosenberg (1986,) Dorothy Jantzen (1985–1988,) Bob Sherrin (2002,) Ryan Knighton (2001,) Sharon Thesen (2001-2005,) Jenny Penberthy (2005-2014,) Brook Houglum (2010-2015,) Andrea Actis (2015-2017,) Catriona Strang (2017-2018,) and Fenn Stewart (2018-2019) have provoked and sustained imagination and possibility for a wide range of writers and artists.
For over forty years, The Capilano Review and its community of readers, writers, and artists have worked to expand the boundaries of and dialogue between writing and art.
In 2015, the magazine parted from Capilano University. Now an independent publication, TCR is located in The Arts Factory, Vancouver. Our publication and its members strive to honour & respect Indigenous presence as well as the unceded land rights of the Skwxwú7mesh, xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ .

Michelle Sylliboy, a Mi’kmaq (L’nu) artist/author, was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and raised on unceded territory in We’koqmaq Cape Breton. Arriving on the art scene in 1995, her Interdisciplinary art practice embodies some of her own life experiences which has led her to work with emerging and professional artists from all over Turtle Island. Michelle recently moved back to her territory after living and working on unceded Coast Salish territory for the past twenty-seven years. While in Vancouver, she learned to capture and intrigue the art community with her Interdisciplinary style of work. She gathers much of her inspiration from personal tales, the environment, and her L’nuk culture. PhD Candidate, Michelle is working on her Philosophy of Education Doctorate Degree fieldwork where she will combine her artistic background and education by creating a L’nuk Komqwejwi’kasikl (Hieroglyphic) curriculum with L’nuk teachers and Elders in Cape Breton.
