Announcing Studio-- a new poetry online journal

Announcing the launch of the inaugural issue of Studio, a new online international poetry journal.

The celebration and launch were at Green College, University of British Columbia on March 9, 2007. One of the readers was Portland writer Judith Arcana, who has three poems in the first issue. The journal is a unique interdisciplinary and collaborative venture between York University and The University of British Columbia.

Peer reviewed and published twice a year, Studio seeks to present outstanding poetry and poetry criticism from Canada and abroad, while offering an innovative and unprecedented focus on the interdisciplinary relationships between poetry, education, cultural studies, and other art forms.

Every issue of Studio will feature a pedagogy section that explores issues of education related to poetry and the education of the poet, as well as concerns of poetry in relation to internationalization, globalization, contemporary society, and human rights. Studio introduces established and new poets, translators, and writers to a large, on-line, global readership.

Rishma Dunlop is Editor, and Jason Guriel, Assistant Editor. The next issue will be published in October 2007.
