Out of Line: Celebrating 40 Years

Oct 11, 2015

Contemporary Verse 2 celebrates 40 years of publishing, not by looking back, but by paying homage to the future of poetry.

The Fall 2015 issue of CV2 is a collaborative project with The Winnipeg Review celebrating 40 years of poetry and critical writing in Canada. The "Out of Line" issue features a conversation with Katherena Vermette, visual art curated by Kegan McFadden for "A Putting Down of Roots," a discussion with with Ray Hsu (accompanied by fabulous photos by Joey Armstrong), an interview with some of Winnipeg's young poets, as well as a strong collection of photography, poetry, essays and reviews.

This unique issue breaks free from CV2's usual aesthetic to combine words, images, and design together in what has become a beautiful and unique collaboration from a wide array of artists.
