About

Metatron Press (est 2014) is a Canadian literary publisher that specializes in publishing contemporary writing by debut authors. We focus on publishing edgy and provocative books that don’t necessarily fit into pre-existing literary canons or traditions, carving out new ones in the process. Brave and emotionally-resonant, the work we publish both challenges and informs a new direction and style of contemporary writing and publishing. You can view and purchase all of our available titles in our online book store, as well as sold-out titles in our e-book shop.

 

 

Known for our edgy pocketbooks and for the platform we offer emerging writers, our publishing program also includes readings and various digital publishing projects. Our books and projects 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. Since 2014 we have supported over 500 writers from all around the world through our various projects.
