Goose Lane Editions

Susanne Alexander and Julie Scriver,
managing partners of Goose Lane Editions,
Canada's oldest independent book publisher.
Goose Lane Editions specializes in high quality Canadian literary fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. The company considers submissions from outside Canada only when the author is Canadian and the book is of extraordinary interest to Canadian readers. Goose Lanes does not publish books for children or for the young adult market.

Goose Lane publishes works by both established and up-and-coming Canadian authors with established publishing history in literary journals and magazines (such as The Fiddlehead, The Antigonish Review, Grain, The Malahat Review, or Matrix, or e-zines such as Broken Pencil or other online magazines.)

Non-fiction writers should have some experience in publishing articles in magazines, newspapers or other periodicals.

Al l submissions should include:
• A brief profile of yourself (one page or less) summarizing professional and personal information relevant to this book.
• A list of previous publications, including any portions of the manuscript that have been published elsewhere.
• A synopsis or outline of the whole book.
• A sample of 30-50 consecutive, double-spaced, numbered manuscript pages.
• For short story collections, send enough stories to achieve the sample size mentioned above.
• Non-fiction submissions should include ideas for illustration with your outline and photocopies or printouts of illustrative material with your sample (if applicable).

For poetry, submit the entire manuscript, double-spaced with numbered pages.

Send submissions to:
