Founded in 1970

Founded in 1970 by R.J. MacSween, TAR is one of Canada’s oldest literary quarterlies. TAR’s original mandate – to produce four quality issues annually that encompass regional, national and, to a lesser extent, international writing – remains unchanged. TAR has always embraced eclecticism over any particular aesthetic or style of writing. Since its beginnings TAR has published poetry, fiction, essays, book reviews and translations.
