McGill Fortnightly review was founded by F.R. Scott and A.J.M. Smith as an independent undergraduate journal after it was announced that the Students’ Council couldn’t support the publishing of the McGill Daily Literary supplement which is detailed in the first issue editorial. The student publication ran from 1925-1927 and featured modernist poetry and prose.
Read more about the McGill Fortnightly review in Ken Norris’ 1980 English thesis “The role of the little magazine in the development of modernism and post-modernism in Canadian poetry” which is available online in our institutional repository, eScholarship.
