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 :)
Metatron Press is now open for manuscript submissions. All submissions will be considered by our editors for publication in our 2021-2023 publishing cycle.
We are accepting submissions of poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction. We are also open to alternative book ideas that do not currently fit our publishing ethos. We do not have strict submission guidelines (formatting/length) but please keep in mind our books tend to be on the shorter side (30-160 pages or so). We recommend you familiarize yourself with our books if you're curious as to whether or not your book would be a good fit with Metatron.
