Founded in 1974, The Porcupine’s Quill’s mandate has always been to publish contemporary Canadian literature. They are dedicated to discovering talented new writers and to reprinting exceptional Canadian literature from the past. They publish ten to twelve titles annually, ranging from fiction, to poetry, to literary criticism, and art.
The Porcupine’s Quill is one of only a few Canadian presses that completes most of its production in-house, and their books have won many awards for their beauty and quality. In 2008 co-founders, Tim and Elke Inkster, were appointed to the Order of Canada in honour of their contributions to Canadian publishing and their promotion of new authors.
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.
