Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Celebrating adventures in literary publishing since 2004, Book*hug Press is a radically optimistic Canadian independent literary press working at the forefront of contemporary book culture. Our mandate is to publish innovative and contemporary books of literary fiction, literary nonfiction, literature in translation, and poetry by emerging and established writers. Our mission is to publish work that meaningfully contributes to and reflects culture and society; books that challenge and push at the boundaries of cultural expectations. Book*hug Press is deeply committed to building a more inclusive and equitable publishing landscape by amplifying culturally diverse voices whose work has been historically underrepresented in the publishing landscape. When acquiring manuscripts we carefully consider questions such as: whose voices are missing and who are the storytellers that we need most right now? We especially welcome work by BIPOC writers, LGBTQIA2S+ writers, deaf and disabled writers, and women
