Now or Never Publishing seeks Canadian fiction and poetry

Now or Never Publishing
1003 Pacific Street
Vancouver, BC  V6E 4P2

Now or Never is a small independent publisher that’s looking for Canadian fiction and poetry. Here’s what they have to say:

Okay, so we’re ready to start looking at book submissions again. But we expect to fall behind almost immediately, so before you send anything, please make sure you’ve looked at (and maybe even read!) our other books.

As this is the future we’ve all been eagerly anticipating, we now only accept 
email submissions. And so, with that in mind, send us whatever the hell you want. We will probably take forever to respond, and we do apologize for that. However, if you’re still interested, please send us the complete manuscript; it’s tough to consider sample chapters or poems when you’re just not that bright. We’ll see how it goes. Thanks for letting us see your work.

Again, though, no snail mail. We really can’t stress that enough. Our office is tiny, messy, and poorly managed at the best of times. Oh yeah, and we’re apparently a “literary publisher interested in contemporary Canadian fiction and poetry,” whatever the heck that means. It probably means that, at present, we only consider work by Canadian authors. So there.
