Founded in 2015 by Lori Shwydky and Cheryl Ann Kelly, Rebel Mountain Press is a small, independently owned, Canadian book publisher of anthologies, poetry, children’s and young adult literature, memoir, and adult fiction. Currently, we publish 2-4 titles per year. Rebel welcomes new and emerging Canadian authors, as well as more established Canadian writers. Our goal is to give a voice to Canadian authors who might not otherwise be heard, such as those from the LGBTQ2+ community, authors of Aboriginal descent, or those from other marginalized groups. Our aim is to create books that are insightful and promote greater social awareness and tolerance. We strive to publish books that will make a strong artistic and cultural contribution to Canadian literature—to illuminate the experiences of Canadians of all ages, abilities, ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations, giving readers the perspective and insight necessary to empathize with and understand others from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
