Tidewater Press publishes true and imagined stories of identity and belonging. Our books explore the relationship between individuals and the communities in which they live – the ways in which people’s behaviour, values and perceptions are influenced by their circumstances, as well as each person’s ability to affect social change.

Established in 2017, Tidewater is a small press committed to enhancing the viability of new Canadian literature. A particular focus is working with self-published authors with the talent, commitment and potential to transition to professional trade publishing.

Our submission process offers valuable feedback and constructive guidance to authors whose work is not yet ready for publication.
