a breath of fresh air in the publishing industry
Libros Libertad is a new independent publisher in Western Canada. Our literary tastes are trans-generic, our cultural concerns are global.
At Libros, we believe that as media converge and tongues mingle, so publishing becomes a new entity, omni-national, polyglot, as polymorphous as its potential readers – and writers.
You could be writing in Mandarin or German, you could be living in the suburbs of Seoul or the wilds of Alaska. If you feel you have something distinctive to say, then feel free to contact us. We're looking for the gold in the melting-pot. Across the whole Earth.
Of course, the diverse roots of Canadians are a rich resource of creative energy and renewal.

As well as established writers, older forms, voices from beyond...
At Libros, we consider poetry, fiction, drama, and short stories from Canadian authors.
