Tightrope Books is currently seeking poetry, adult literary fiction and literary non-fiction (especially memoir and biography) manuscripts from Canadian citizens or permanent Canadian residents.
Our tagline is “Imagination on the High Wire” and we publish 10-12 books a year (including our two “Best Canadian” anthologies), and our mandate includes a commitment to publishing exquisite books that mirror and explore cross-cultural conflict and relations. We encourage submissions from authors who represent the broad range of diversity including, but not limited to, Indigenous, racialized, and LBGTQ writers, writers with disabilities and younger writers under the age of 30.
Please send a query letter with a brief biography and a brief description of your manuscript and how it fits into Tightrope’s mandate and current list of books. Please also include the first page or two of your manuscript, but not the complete ms. Send to Jim Nason, Publisher, Tightrope Books, #207-2 College Street, Toronto ON M5G 1K3 Canada or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
