NON Publishing seeks Canadian fiction and poetry

King of the Class by Gila Green
published by NON

NON {Now or Never} Publishing
901, 163 Street
Surrey, BC  V4A 9T8

NON is a small independent publisher that’s looking for Canadian fiction {novels and short story collections} 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.
Submit your manuscript to NON publisher Chris Needham at:

The best way to get your work in shape is probably with a weekly course.
