Metatron Press (est 2014) is a Canadian literary publisher that specializes in publishing contemporary writing (poetry and fiction) by debut authors. Our press has an acute focus on elevating voices and narratives not usually represented in the mass market book industry. Brave and emotionally-resonant, the work we publish both challenges and informs a new direction and style of contemporary writing and publishing. Known for our edgy pocketbooks and for the platform we offer emerging writers, our publishing program also includes readings and various digital publishing projects. Since 2014 we have supported over 500 writers from all over the world through our various projects. You can view and purchase all of our available titles in our book shop, as well as sold-out titles in our e-book shop.
Our books and press have appeared in the The Millions, Los Angeles Review of Books, Poetry Foundation, Electric Literature, Poets & Writers, The Globe and Mail, CBC, Autostraddle, Rookie, TANK, Dazed, Remezcla, Shondaland, Bustle and more.
The name and inspiration for our logo comes from a shape and concept in sacred geometry called Metatron's Cube. If you would like to learn more about the inspiration behind our press, please consider checking out this essay, this article, this interview or this podcast. We are primarily based in Montréal on unceded Kanien'kehá:ka territory.
