W 2010 announces a new formation—both for the magazine and the Kootenay School of Writing. KSW, the more venerable of the two, is 25 years; W is ten. A new collective structure is in place for the School: a cluster of semi-autonomous yet intersecting “pods” (or “cells” if you prefer a more radical conception), each with its own projects or “areas of influence” (readings / pedagogy / publication, etc). W 2010 begins a new conception of the magazine as an annual: this first issue gathers work from the present collective (or perhaps we should now say collectives); future annual issues will be announced with a themed call, for which work will be gathered and published on-line over the course of the year. We hope work will be written dialogically as an issue accumulates: an initial selection of material will be posted, and then responses / extensions / contestations / emendations, etc, as they come; at the close of a year/issue, a print run of at least a “selection” of the year’s material will ideally then be issued.
