dANDelion magazine publishes literature and art on the edge. We are committed to supporting both emerging and established writers and artists of local, national, and international stature. Our tastes are eclectic. We are, however, particularly interested in concrete, hybrid, and collaborative work. Recent issues have featured Erin Moure, Caroline Bergvall, Sina Queyras, Nicole Brossard, derek beaulieu, Jesse Patrick Ferguson, Jessica Hiemstra-van der Horst, Christine Stewart, Lisa Robertson, and Sandy Pool and Blair Prentice.
The first issue of dANDelion appeared in 1975, and in 1979 Dandelion Magazine Society was incorporated to oversee the magazine’s publication. Since then, this Calgary-based society has published innovative prose, poetry, and visual arts from writers and artists of local, national, and international renown. Dandelion Magazine Society also works to encourage and support local writers and artists by providing venues for publication and performance, and through educational workshops and seminars.
