Journal History

This Side of West was created by the Writing Students Guild of the University of Victoria in 1985, but it was originally published under the name of Seventh Wave. This title lasted for several issues until the journal's name changed to Harbour Review in 1997, which lasted until 2001.  In 2002 the Writing Students Union renamed the journal a final time, and this spring, 2012, will be the 10th issue under the current name This Side of West.
