BookLand Press is an independent Canadian publisher of a wide variety of quality literature. Our interests range from contemporary poetry to beautifully written fiction and creative non-fiction. We are particularly interested in work that is different, exciting, and awakens us to angles of the world that we haven't noticed before.

Fresh. Insightful. Provocative. Multicultural. These are some of the words that describe the kind of books BookLand Press seeks to publish. 

BookLand accepts unsolicited submissions of full manuscripts, but will respond only if theu’re interested in your book.

Submit your manuscript by mail  or email your manuscript as an attached Word file to submissions@booklandpress.com

Brian Henry will host “From the Horse’s Mouth: Getting published or self-published at Ryerson University on June 15 with Stacey Donaghy of the Corvisiero Literary Agency, Greg Ioannou of Iguana Books, and Patrick Crean of HarperCollins Canada (details here). To register, email brianhenry@sympatico.ca

However, before you submit, though, the best way to get your manuscript into shape is with a weekly course.
