Metatron Press (est 2014) is an independent, Canadian, literary publisher that specializes in publishing contemporary books 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. Known for our iconic pocketbooks and for the platform we offer emerging writers, our publishing program also includes readings and various digital publishing projects, including ÖMËGÄ, ÄLPHÄ and #MicroMeta.
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, Quill & Quire, 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.
Metatron-Press is 100% woman-owned and operated.
Metatron Press lives and works on the lands of the Kanien'kehá:ka. Kanien'kehá:ka are the easternmost member of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, also referred to as the Six Nations Confederacy. This land that we live and work on is commonly called Montréal, but its original name is Tiohtià:ke.
We recognize the financial support and contribution of the Canada Council for the Arts, who have supported us through their Literary Publishing Projects program.
Metatron Press believes in utilizing our platform as a means to raise awareness and funds for important causes to our community. We are committed to doing our best, given our financial situation year-to-year, to re-distribute funds to marginalized folks, pay reparations to Black and Indigenous people, invest a portion of our earnings back into our community, and donate book bundles to communities in need. In 2020 we donated 17% of our book sale earnings to various organizations and donated 100 books to the community.
Metatron Press books are printed and bound in Quebec, Canada, and are produced using natural, unbleached Rolland Enviro® Book paper made with 100% post-consumer fiber. The padded mailers we use to ship out your book orders are made of and filled with recycled newsprint. They are also recyclable upon discard.
