The British Columbia Review

The British Columbia Review

The British Columbia Review (BC Review) originated in 2016 as The Ormsby Review. We are a lively and inclusive Vancouver-based online journal devoted to the literature, arts, culture, and society of British Columbia. Our mandate is to review books by BC-based writers wherever and however they choose to publish them. When possible, we also find BC reviewers.

Our accessible and authoritative reviews, essays, and memoirs are open and free. Nothing is hidden behind paywalls.

The British Columbia Review works with writers, publishers, and literary professionals across Canada to promote books published by BC writers or about British Columbia in all its diversity.

We include books by all authors, regardless of race, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender or gender identity, ethnicity, religion, political belief, marital or family status, and/or status as Indigenous, Métis, or Inuit.
