We respectfully acknowledge that this event will take place on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the ʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations. We recognize their sovereignty, as there are no treaties on these lands, and we are dedicated to building a new relationship between our nations based on respect and consent.


The front door to the venue has a 6-inch step and a wheelchair ramp is available upon request; staff will be on hand to assist. The front door is 58 inches wide and the washroom door is 36 inches wide. Please email us if you have any specific requests or need further information about the venue.


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.
