Metatron is an independent publisher based in Montreal that specializes in contemporary literature by new and emerging authors. We are devoted to publishing perspectives that reflect the experiences and sensibilities of our time, seeking out emotionally resonant work that challenges and informs a new direction and style of contemporary writing.

Please use Metatron’s Submittable. We specifically encourage submissions from queers, femmes, bipoc, lgbtq, trans/gender nonconforming, people with (dis)ability/ies*, women and any one else living on the margins. Our next reading period will be in October.


If you’d like to submit a manuscript:
We are currently not accepting manuscript queries. Please keep in mind that we publish 6-8 titles a year.


If a book you want to buy is sold out:
We publish pocketbooks in limited edition print runs (250-500 copies). We are currently working on making all our publications available to download straight from our site, so that everyone can enjoy the amazing titles we’ve had the honour of publishing.
