Portal 2023 Launch

April 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

(Portal 2023 Launch Party Poster)

Are you ready for the launch of Portal 2023? Our annual issue has gone to print, and to celebrate our new issue, we’re throwing a party.

The students of CREW 430/431 work hard to produce Portal magazine—come see what they’ve been up to for the past eight months! Visit our cash bar, pick up some back issues, and swan-dive into the new issue of Portal magazine. 

Please join us for readings, reception, music, and awards. Our catered reception also includes many vegetarian-friendly appetizers. 

At 108 pages, Portal 2023 is our biggest issue yet. Portal has grown a lot in the 32 years since its release, and we hope you enjoy our “Garden of Stories” themed event. 

As it turns out, our contributors list this year is made up entirely of VIU students. Tickets support the ongoing annual publication of VIU’s literary magazine, and each includes a copy of our new $12 issue, Portal 2023.

Tickets are available from our masthead and at the door (capacity 120) for $18 each. All purchases are cash only. 



Doors open at 6pm on Friday, April 21. We hope to see you there!
