Please send, along with your submission, a maximum of one page on each of the following subjects:


  • A biography that notes your citizenship ... we will publish only writers who  are Canadian citizens.

  • An overview of your submission: its themes, main ideas, etc.

  • A list of previously published work, reviews, etc.

  • A statement as to why you believe your submission should be considered for  publication.

  • Any ideas you have that might help in the promotion of your book.

  • Your contact information: mailing address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.




We will likely receive several manuscripts for consideration during each submission period, but we will publish only 2 to 4 books a year.


We would prefer not to have to consider multiple submissions.


Selecting the manuscripts for publication will be involved and will take some time, so please allow 2 months for a reply.


  1. Your submission will be read by the receiving editor.

  2. A short-list of manuscripts will be assembled and read again.

  3. The short-list will be winnowed to the successful manuscript(s).




If your submission is not accepted for publication, it will be returned with a written reply if it includes a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE) with sufficient Canadian postage [No dated return postage, please.], the  sage advice of Ring Lardner notwithstanding:

A good many young writers make the mistake of enclosing a stamped,

self-addressed envelope, big enough for the manuscript to come back in.

This is too much of a temptation  to the editor. 


If no SASE is included, your manuscript will be recycled and a short e-mail will be sent to you.

If your submission is accepted for publication, you will be contacted by e-mail.

So, make sure we have your e-mail address!



Acknowledgement of Manuscript Receipt


If you wish an acknowledgement of our receipt of your submission, please include a Self-Addressed Stamped Postcard (SASP) or a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE) with your submission.
