For over forty years, The Capilano Review has been a platform for the dialogue between writing and art. Its editors have sustained imagination and possibility for a wide range of writers, artists and audiences.
TCR was founded in 1972 by Pierre Coupey at Capilano College in North Vancouver. Since then, its editors have included: Bill Schermbrucker, Ann Rosenberg, Dorothy Jantzen, Bob Sherrin, Ryan Knighton, Sharon Thesen, Jenny Penberthy, Brook Houglum, Andrea Actis, Catriona Strang, and Fenn Stewart.
In 2015, the magazine parted from Capilano University. Now an independent not-for-profit publication, TCR is located in the Woodwards Heritage Building in downtown Vancouver where is respectfully operates on the unceded and ancestral lands of Skwxwú7mesh, xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ peoples.
