Portal 2024 Launch Party

April 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Are you ready for the launch of Portal 2024? Our annual issue has gone to print, and we’re throwing a party!

The students of CREW 430/431 have worked tirelessly with authors and each other to rewire and connect past, present and future in a literary circuit, just as these worlds collide on the page both visually and textually. Like the burst of fuchsia on our cover, we are confident much will bloom from what is planted here in our collective imagination. Come and see for yourself!

Please join us for readings, reception, music, and awards to help us celebrate the blooming of the new issue of Portal magazine

Visit our cash bar, pick up some back issues, and enjoy our catered reception (which includes many vegetarian-friendly appetizers). 

 The 29 literary works that make up the 33rd issue of Portal are testimony to the power of language and prove that resiliency transcends genre, time and borders.  We can’t wait to share them with you.


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 $20 each. All purchases are cash only. 

Doors open at 6:30pm on Friday, April 26. We hope to see you there!
