Pedlar Press is a Canadian literary publishing house now based in St. John’s Newfoundland, started in 1996 and operated single-handedly over its 16-year history by owner, Beth Follett. How this tiny organization manages to produce beautiful books of poetry, fiction, and essays of unfaltering quality and originality and still continue to exist is difficult to answer. But it does.
It seems likely, however, that individual development continues to be the real goal of life, and to that end Pedlar Press acquires works by Canadian writers who are struggling with questions about what it means to be human at this time whose texts embody these questions in startlingly fresh ways.
All Lit Up is produced by the Literary Press Group and LitDistCo. LPG and LitDistCo acknowledge the financial support of the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Ontario Arts Council.
