Room of One’s Own (now named Room), Canada’s oldest literary journal by, for and about women, publishes poetry, fiction and literary criticism. The first issue was produced in 1975 by a collective of volunteers who took the name from Virginia Woolf’s essay, written in 1929 (“It is necessary to have five hundred [pounds] a year and a room with a lock on the door if you are to write fiction or poetry”). The journal has published more than one hundred issues, with work by Audrey Thomas, Carol Shields, Dorothy Livesay, Marian Engel, Helen Humphreys, Lorna Crozier and many others. Eleanor Wachtel, Jean Wilson and Gayla Reid are among the women who served as editors in the early years.
