Tightrope Books was established in January 2005 to bring a fresh take to Canadian literature by juxtaposing new and established writers, genres, and cultures to build an inclusive list that represents the vitality of current Canadian literature. They are dedicated to publishing new cultural creators who walk the fine balance between innovation and accessibility. Tightrope publishes fiction, poetry, books on art, creative non-fiction (essays, memoir), and books that defy normative categorical garrisons. Their books aim to hit their literary marks with acuity, honesty, and verve.
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.
