Montreal Publishing Company is here because the book world has changed; because the author's reality is more complex—less certain. 

Our mission: To identify writing that compels, stories that grip, to get to know, and understand, the creators, and to establish a firm ground that will ensure the success of a healthy partnership.

Yellow Arrow Publishing supports and inspires writers identifying as women through publication and access to the literary arts. Women’s voices have historically been underrepresented in literature, and we aim to elevate those voices and stories through our programs and publications.

Accepted submissions of poetry chapbooks are by authors that identify as women from around the world. We only accept digital submissions. At this time, we prefer working with authors without agents. Submissions are anonymously read by a team of Yellow Arrow staff. From those sent in, we choose three to publish the following year. See Submissions Guidelines for more information.

The mission of Madville Publishing is to produce, publish, and market literary works of the highest quality that reflect the diversity of the modern English-speaking world. We seek to publish poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction by notable and emerging authors who display diversity in ethnicity, gender, age, and worldview, and whose work exhibits the full range of this diversity. Our goal is to discover and showcase works that might otherwise be overlooked, to provide opportunity for voices that might otherwise be unheard.

Start with a basic query. We'll let you know if we would like to know any more. Our office staff is made up of volunteers, and there is a lot to do. Blind queries go straight in the trash. You do not require an agent, but if you are recommended by someone we know, that gives you a better chance. We won't read past the first couple of paragraphs, so keep your query brief. Elevator pitch.
