Metatron Press is a literary publisher based in Tio'tia:ke (Montréal, Canada) on unceded Kanien'kehá:ka territory. We specialize in publishing edgy and spirited contemporary writing by new and rising authors. We've been putting our moody and fun poetic stamp on the world since 2012, publishing literary pocketbooks, digital poetry, running an annual writing prize (The Metatron Prize for Rising Authors) and producing unique literary happenings. Devoted to publishing perspectives that reflect the experiences and sensibilities of our time, we seek out emotionally-resonant work that challenges and informs a new direction and style of contemporary writing.

We specifically encourage submissions from anyone living on the margins of the imperialist, capitalist, ableist, hetero-normative, 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.

We look forward to reading your work and thank you in advance for trusting us as a space to feature it :)
