Name of creator
'Waves' was a literary magazine originally produced at York University (1972-1980), that grew out of a poetry workshop conducted by Irving Layton at the university in the 1970-1971 school year. The journal was devoted to prose and poetry, and was issued three times a year. The editor of 'Waves,' Bernice Lever, also served as office and business manager, circulation manager, and eventually became owner of 'Waves,' in 1976. From 1980 until it ceased publication in 1987, 'Waves' was produced in her home.
