Name of creator
Writing magazine was begun by the poets David McFadden (1940-) and Fred Wah (1939-), at the David Thompson University Centre in Nelson, British Columbia, in 1980. Though it began as part of the creative writing programme there, it is not a student magazine. It has published the work of Canadian writers such as Margaret Atwood, Susan Musgrave, and George Bowering, among others.
Scope and content
The fonds is arranged into two series: correspondence and manuscripts received, and layout and paste-up materials for issues 1-5, Summer 1980 to Spring 1982. Researchers are also directed to the separate David McFadden fonds.
Immediate source of acquisition
Fonds was acquired from David McFadden via Acadia Bookstore, Toronto in November 1982.
