Issue 3.39

Fall 2019

I long for collaborations that use circles

– Jónína Kirton

 

Issue 3.39 (Fall 2019), guest-edited by Juliane Okot Bitek, expands on the theme of collaboration, widening the definition to include co-elaborations, slow unfoldings, gatherations and even the enemy.

Look forward to writing and art from Akem, Hari Alluri, Hana Amani, Dariush Alexander Ghaderi Barrera, Junie Désil, Mercedes Eng, Sinead Grewcock, G. Maria Hindmarch, Jónína Kirton, Jami Macarty, Cecily Nicholson, ReMatriate Collective, Genevieve Robertson, Shanzhai Lyric, Chris Turnbull, and Jacqueline Turner, plus reviews by Elee Kraljii Gardiner and Danielle La France. This issue also features a special poets theatre tribute to Kevin Killian by his Vancouver friends, a conversation between Al Filreis, Deanna Fong, Erín Moure and Karis Shearer, and our 2019 Biofiction Contest winner, Emily Carr.
