O if we could only see / such Beauty through the year

At Pedlar Press, our commitment to excellence is unwavering. We choose works whose merits are unmistakeable. We hope, as Emily Dickinson said, to blow the roofs off readers’ heads, with fiction, nonfiction and poetry by Canadian writers of excellence.


“If I read a book [and] it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only ways I know it. Is there any other way?”
