About Us

Founded in 1975, the LPG is a not-for-profit association that represents Canadian-owned and -operated literary book publishers from coast to coast. Our members produce books by some of Canada’s most innovative and creative writers, giving readers access to diverse voices that have not been well represented in mainstream publishing. In addition to their cultural contributions, LPG members are small businesses that support local economies through the full range of their business activities, from editorial, design, and production to marketing, sales, and distribution.

The LPG advocates for members and for Canadian literary culture; manages a collective sales force; offers distribution services; operates the online book retailer All Lit Up; provides professional development and knowledge-sharing opportunities; and represents member publishers at national and international events.

Mission

The LPG supports Canada’s independent literary publishers and promotes Canadian literary culture. We provide critical business, professional development, advocacy, and networking services to member publishers, who produce diverse literary works of fiction, poetry, drama, and creative non-fiction. We connect readers with essential books.

Vision

A vibrant, sustainable Canadian literary publishing ecosystem.

LPG acknowledges we are hosted on the lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinaabeg, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat. We also recognize the enduring presence of all First Nations, M├ętis and the Inuit people, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to meet and work on this territory.
