Founded in 2015, Rebel Mountain Press is a small, independently owned Canadian book publisher of anthologies, poetry, children's, and young adult fiction. Currently, we publish 5 titles per year. We publish primarily Canadian authors. As a new and emerging publisher, we currently have six anthology books in print (see our catalogue page) with 5 upcoming titles in 2019. ( Future projects) We publish anthologies about subjects we feel passionate, to illuminate the experiences of Canadians of all ages, abilities, ethnicities, genders, and sexual orientations.
Rebel Mountain Press anthology- Breaking Boundaries: LGBTQ2 Writers Coming Out and Into Canada has been nominated for the George Ryga Award-an annual literary prize for a B.C. writer who has achieved an outstanding degree of social awareness in a new book published in the preceding calendar year.
We are seeking young adult fiction (for ages 13-18) featuring coming of age stories with unique and interesting characters at the crest of defining moments, particularly characters that belong to marginalized groups. We want stories that are off the beaten track; that are unafraid to push the edge. Our goal is to provide teen reading material that is thought-provoking and inspirational. (We do not publish moralizing or religious stories.) Stories that are high adventure are also accepted, as are those for reluctant readers. We especially seek stories with strong, empowering female leads. We also have an interest in publishing books that celebrate the lives of Indigenous people, and those who identify as LGBTQ2+. Please see our future projects page for the anthologies, children's books and YA books planned for release in 2019-2020.
We encourage submissions from both emerging and established authors. (see novel submission page) Our office is located in Nanoose Bay, British Columbia, Canada. We acknowledge that this area where we work is the traditional territory of the Snaw-Naw-As First Nation, and we thank them for the use of this beautiful land.
Special thanks to Joy Gugeler for her publishing advice.
