The Early Years

Summer 2010 · Vol. 33 No. 1

The first of two issues in celebration of Contemporary Verse 2‘s thirty-five years of fine poetry. We focus on the first ten years of the journal’s history, from its founding in 1975 by Dorothy Livesay until 1985, when the magazine underwent a complete overhaul – resulting in radical changes not only to the editorial structure but to the size, look and publishing mandate of the magazine.
