Pedlar Press is a Canadian literary publishing house based in St. John’s, Newfoundland, started in 1996 and operated single-handedly till 2018 by owner, Beth Follett. Monica Kidd joined as co-owner/acquisitions editor in 2018.
It seems likely that individual development — soul-making, as Carl Jung called it —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 in the 21st century, whose texts embody social questions in startlingly fresh ways. Recent examples include Kate Cayley’s How You Were Born, and Martha Baillie’s The Search for Heinrich Schlögel.
