Oberon Press is an independent Canadian literary publisher founded more than 50 years ago to help give Canadians books of their own. It is operated and owned by Canadians and publishes only books by Canadian writers. We have always been principally interested in fiction—Oberon has been recognized for many years as Canada’s leading publisher of short stories—and in poetry, but we have also published biographies and autobiographies, historical studies, literary criticism, art books and children’s books. We have never published a book that didn’t have literary merit, or turned down a book with literary merit because we thought we would lose money on it.

and the Government of Canada through the
