METATRON PRESS (est 2014) is an award-winning literary publisher that specializes in publishing contemporary books and writing by rising authors. We focus on publishing edgy and provocative books that don’t necessarily fit into pre-existing literary canons or traditions, carving out new ones in the process. Brave and emotionally-resonant, the work we publish both challenges and informs a new direction and style of contemporary writing and publishing. Known for our iconic pocketbooks and for the platform we offer emerging writers, our publishing program also includes an annual prize (The Metatron Prize for Rising Authors), events and various digital publishing projects, including ÖMËGÄ, ÄLPHÄ, #MICROMETA and a video poem series on YouTube. Metatron Press is based in Tio'tia:ke (Montréal, Canada) on unceded Kanien'kehá:ka territory.

We specifically encourage submissions from anyone living on the margins of the imperialist, capitalist, ableist, heteronormative, patriarchal, white-supremacist machine (bell hooks) and anyone else seeking an encouraging and safe environment to showcase their work. If you identify as such and wish for us to know, please include the information in your submission.

Check out our open submissions below! We look forward to reading your work and thank you in advance for trusting us as a space to feature it :)
