New Orphic Review Archives

Two of the unsung heroes of B.C. literature, Ernest Hekkanen and Margrith Schraner, began The New Orphic Review, a bi-annual journal of fiction, poetry, reviews and essays in 1998 when they had just turned fifty-one. “To create a product of no obvious practical value,” he writes in the penultimate issue, “and for which there would be an extremely limited market, if any at all, seemed to me an act of defiance worth pouring some hard-earned cash into.” They kept their Nelson-based publication going for forty issues without financial assistance from any level of government.

The New Orphic Review featured artwork by Ernest Hekkanen and writing by authors from Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Ireland, Britain, Chile, Canada and the United States. It frequently included a Featured Poet section.

  1. Thank you for changing Margrith’s last name to Schraner. Also, kudos all around for giving our outback literary efforts as much attention as you’ve been doing for the past 20 years.

  2. Thanks for the update. On the New Orphic Archives home page, please refer to Margrith Schraner by her last name, namely, Schraner. Otherwise she’ll think there’s a male conspiracy afoot to deny her her actual name: Margrith Schraner.
