Smaller presses are incredibly important to our literary culture in large part because of the role they play in finding new literary talent and helping emerging authors find an audience. We’ve included links to the Giller authors’ presses in the bulleted list above: peek around their websites to see who else they’re publishing.
Also key to adding more publishing ground to the Canadian literary landscape are the cultural magazines that make space for short stories and excerpts. With this in mind, you might want to check out the magazines that published some of the finalists long before they burst onto the Giller podium: Geist, Event, The Fiddlehead, Prairie Fire, and The Walrus.
