TISH

Tish

TISH was a monthly poetry newsletter established in 1961 by Frank Davey, James Reid, George Bowering, Fred Wah and David Dawson. The name TISH was chosen because it was an anagram for shit, evoking “a movement,” “a sound” and a sense of “what must come and does.” Although it got its start at UBC, TISH had no permanent address; it tended to relocate when the publishers saw an opportunity for cheaper rent. The newsletter was also habitually broke, often relying on favours from friends and colleagues, such as free mimeographing or a new place to set up shop. TISH continued to publish until 1969. It was an influential periodical that informed many local literary endeavours through the 1970s.
