Hidden Brook Press publishes mostly Canadian royalty / trade edition books but we do consider work from other countries.  We have no specific mandate of how many books or what genre but we love publishing Canadian Lit – poetry and prose.

Please send, by email part of your finished manuscript with a short bio, and a synopsis of your book. Tell us who your target audience is. We receive more ms that we can possibly publish. Part of what we consider in choosing an author how many books they are able to sell – how well connected are you to the book buying market.

We have a selection committee that looks at all manuscripts so sometimes it will take a while for us to get back to you. While it might take a number of months for us to get back to you we will eventually be in touch. The ms pile is tall.

Because we are a small publisher we only accept FINISHED ms for publication. We do not have any editorial or copy edit staff.  The author is responsible for producing the finished ms.

While we do publish some contracted books every year they are most often books for the academic and USA market place. All of our Canadian Literature series are royalty / trade edition books.

Please send finished manuscripts via mail:
