A West Coast Literary Press, Publishing quality fiction, art, history, poetry and anthologies. Working from home. Creating a legacy of art and literature.


VANCOUVER IS AWESOME: The gorgeous cover of Daniela Elza’s the weight of dew featuring a photograph by Robin Susanto, gives an indication of what you’ll find between the covers. These poems are not only a treat for their language and the imagery they invoke, but also for their actual visual aspect. The emphasis on the space between words forces the reader to pause and savour what is presented, rolling the language around in mouth and mind. The words fall and sit with the lightness of dew, landing on the consciousness as a dragonfly might, but lingering much longer.


Thanks to all who buy our books and we gratefully acknowledge the assistance of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Province of British Columbia through the B.C. Arts Council
