Institutionele geschiedenis

Branching out was initially incorporated as New Women's Magazine Society in 1973. Published in Edmonton from 1973 to 1980, Branching Out was a high quality magazine produced by volunteers with a mandate to publish literature, art and feminist analysis by Canadian women. They sought to create a professional magazine and solicited contributions of prose, poetry, photography, book and film reviews, and news about women's groups across the country. This was in stark contrast to many women's magazines at the time that concentrated on traditional feminine subjects such as housekeeping and knitting patterns. The first issue appeared on shelves in December 1974. Sharon Batt and Susan McMaster were the founding and long term editors and the magazine was staffed by volunteers. Submissions were solicited and a nominal fee was paid. With the exception of hiring a printer, the staff handled all aspects of publication, from layout to distribution.

Bereik en inhoud

This fonds contains mostly textual documents but also some photographs and scrapbooks. It includes the administrative documents of the magazine such as minutes, reports, mailing lists, and guidelines for the organization. It also includes documents relating to editorial development, manuscript submissions and correspondence with authors, correspondence with other organizations and involvement in conferences and workshops. Sharon Batt, editor of Branching Out was also on the board of Canadian Periodical Publishers' Association and involved in the Writers' Guild of Alberta and so as a result some documents relating to these organizations are also included.
