Small Press Spotlight
North, magnetic North. The earnest, if eerie pull that surrounds the upper latitudes also drives the work of Latitude 46 Publishing. Founded by Heather Campbell and Laura Stradiotto in 2015, this small but mighty press focuses on work by Northern Canadian writers. Too often is writing from this region celebrated as some kind of distant cultural inheritance rather than the vibrant and complex tapestry these books show is fully alive. If you’re open to challenging your own expectations, you’ll find that this pair of books leads a whole catalog that punches above its weight for a small outfit like L46.
