Administrative history

Line was a literary periodical with an emphasis on modern innovative poetry. It was founded in 1983 by Dr. Roy Miki of Simon Fraser University English Department. Originally a journal of the [SFU Library Special Collections] Contemporary Literature Collection , it included both scholarly and creative work. Fourteen issues were published between 1983-1989. In 1990 the magazine merged with West Coast Review, another SFU English literary periodical, and became West Coast Line, the editorship continuing under Dr. Miki until 1999, when he was succeeded by Miriam Nichols. The present editor (2009) is Glen Lowry.
