Pedlar Press is an independent Canadian literary press devoted to the publication of innovative and progressive novels, poetry collections and artbooks by renowned, or less-known, or unknown and emerging Canadian writers and artists. Pedlar Press is a champion of difficult work. The house believes that innovation and personal risk are among the most important aspects of contemporary literature. Pedlar has developed an excellent reputation for working in close, supportive collaboration with its writers and for the high quality work that it publishes: seven titles per year. One of Pedlar’s guiding principles is to foster an appreciation for modern and contemporary Canadian literature of enduring cultural and artistic importance, works that challenge accepted views of life and art, foster an international and multicultural sensibility of literature and preserve and extend the literary tradition that values innovation and experimentation in form. Upholding this principle seems increasingly urgent. The intention, from the beginning—to publish challenging and beautiful books—remains firm. Over twenty-three years of experience have sharpened skills of all sorts, from editorial to marketing. Pedlar incorporated in January 2011, and was a one-woman concern until Monica Kidd joined the house in August 2018. Operating since 2012 from a home office in St. John’s NL. 100 Pedlar Press releases are in print.
