Makara

Makara was a Canadian literary and cultural journal published from 1975 to 1978 by the Pacific Women’s Graphic Arts Co-operative from offices on Commercial Drive in Vancouver. Makara was billed as “The Canadian magazine by women for people”; its mandate was to present arts, culture and politics from a feminist perspective. Contributors included Cynthia Flood, Sandy Duncan, Anne Cameron, Daphne Marlatt and Sky Lee. The collective produced thirteen issues that included fiction, poetry, articles, interviews, comics, art portfolios and work for children. Most issues of the magazine were printed by Press Gang, a women-owned printing and publishing company.
