Editorial Focus

Anvil Press is a Vancouver literary press founded in 1991. Now in its twenty-fifth year of publishing, Anvil has firmly established itself as a publisher of progressive, contemporary Canadian literature with a distinctly urban twist. An award-winning publisher of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction, Anvil has become known for its quality books and unconventional literary work. National—and local—in its vision, Anvil remains committed to its East Vancouver roots, and doesn’t shy away from work from the wrong side of the tracks. [CANADIAN AUTHORS ONLY.]
