WORLD CREATION NETWORK
Metatron Press is an award-winning literary publisher based in Montréal, Quebec that specializes in publishing weird, beautiful, and experimental books of poetry, fiction, and hybrid texts by debut authors.
Since 2014, Metatron has acquired manuscripts, published, and publicized beautifully-designed books from a new generation of writers. We publish 3-6 books per year in paperback and e-book formats. We are primarily known for our innovative and intoxicating books of poetry, but also publish award-winning novellas, hybrid works, short story collections, as well as curate various digital publishing projects and palpable events.
In addition to our books, we also run a writing prize (The Metatron Prize for Rising Authors), a podcast (Metacösm), a poetry blog (ÖMËGÄ, 2014-present) and a soon to be released platform devoted to multidisciplinary poetry and poetics (Glyphöria).
Metatron-Press is 100% woman-owned and operated.
We recognize the financial support and contribution of the CANADA COUNCIL FOR THE ARTS, who have supported us through their Literary Publishing Projects and Digital Now programs.
We also recognize the support of SODEC, who have supported us via their Translation program, as well as CHRC, who have supported us with their Student Work Placement Program funded by the Government of Canada. Our initial funding in 2015 was provided by Quebec’s JEUNES VOLONTAIRES program.
The rest is just love and devotion,
All of our books are printed and bound locally in Quebec, Canada, and are produced using natural, unbleached Rolland Enviro® Book paper made with 100% post-consumer fiber.
Metatron Press believes in utilizing our platform as a means not only to uplift contemporary voices but also to raise awareness and funds for important causes in our communities. We are committed to re-distributing funds to marginalized folks, paying reparations, investing a portion of our earnings back into our community, and donating book bundles to communities in need. We also partner with bookstores and organizations that share similar goals.
Metatron Press lives and works on the lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka. The Kanien’kehá:ka are the easternmost member of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. The land that we live and work on is commonly referred to as Montréal but its original names are Tiohtiá:ke to the Haudenosaunee and Mooniyang to the Anishinaabeg.
We direct readers to read and heed the Calls to Action from The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and the The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Commission of Canada.
