Canadian Publishers: mostly Literary

You can start here: The Association of Canadian Publishers Membership Directory 

There are more indie and edge publishers here: The Canadian Writer’s Market (most recent edition!)  – but you will also weep at how poorly most Canadian publications pay. (There’s a reason half of me is a corporate whore.)

The three indie Canadian presses I have a soft spot for are:

The Workhorsery: because Canlit does not have to be boring or depressing!

Now Or Never Publishing: because they may publish prose but they will still kick your ass

ECW Press: because they actually read my pitch letter and sent me a personalized rejection


There are also good resources at the following Canadian writers’ associations, to which I do not belong:

About mjanecolette

Writer. Reader. Angster. Reformed Bohemian (not). Author of the erotic romance TELL ME, the erotic tragedy (with a happy ending) CONSEQUENCES (of defensive adultery), the award-winning rom-com (she's versatile) CHERRY PIE CURE, and TEXT ME, CUPID--a (slightly dirty) love story for 21st century adults who don't believe in love... but want it anyway. A sought-after speaker and presenter, Colette is also the author of the Dirty Writing Secrets Series, which includes the non-fiction collection of essays ROUGH DRAFT CONFESSIONS: not a guide to writing and selling erotica and romance but full of inside inside anyway, 101 FLIRTY WRITING PROMPTS TO SEDUCE YOUR MUSE, and ORGANIZED CREATIVE. She's also the curator of the fab YYC Queer Writers anthologies Queer Christmas in Cowtown, Screw Chocolate, and A Queer Summer Night's in Cowtown. Releasing Spring 2020: CUPID IN MONTE CARLO.
