Publishers Working with BookBoro

Unthank Books

Unthank Books is an independent publisher founded in 2010. Historically, the Unthank is the unclaimed land at the edge of town, and that’s where we reside, nurturing distinct and vibrant literature, both in the novel and short form.

Upper Rubber Boot Books

F  P

Just as an FYI, Upper Rubber Boot Books is on hiatus throughout the end of 2019 and all of 2020. We’re spending our time getting out the vote. Responses to emails will be slower than usual and we are closed to submissions. Thanks for your patience. About
In Canadian vernacular, Upper Rubber Boot is slang for a remote, possibly unhip, probably insignificant place, much like America’s Podunk. Upper Rubber Boot Books was founded in July 2011 to give a voice to writers working from a (metaphorically) remote place, and to that end we publish fine literary and speculative writing, with a special focus on poetry and short story collections, genres which have a particularly difficult time finding a home in the publishing world. Some of our early editions are available as ebooks only, while all of our recent titles are available as ebooks and trade paperbacks.

Valley Press


Valley Press is an independent publishing house based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, UK. We publish poetry, including collections, pamphlets and the occasional anthology; fiction, including novels and collections of short stories; and non-fiction, including memoirs and travel writing.

Valley Press is built on one very important belief: great literature, and great publishing, is for everyone and anyone. We don’t want any reader to feel like an outsider, with their nose pressed against the glass of the ‘literary world’; we promise to never be elitist, smug or exclusive. We promise to treat world-famous and first-time writers with the same respect and courtesy; and when we open submissions, we promise to keep the process wide open, so we can meet more people from both those categories (and everyone in between).

We believe a couple of other things too. For a start, we believe publications from a ‘small, northern, independent publisher’ (as we are typically referred to) should match those from the big London publishing houses in every sense – production values, editing, distribution and promotion. We’re not saying that’ll be easy, but we will always try our best

Vallum Chapbooks


Founded in 2000 and based in Tiohtiá:ke (Montreal, Canada) on unceded Kanien’kehá:ka territory, Vallum magazine is published biannually. Vallum provides a forum for emerging artists to interact with more established figures while giving them exposure and the confidence to continue with their art. As one of Canada’s top poetry journals with an international focus, Vallum encourages dialogue between Quebec and the rest of Canada and allows Canadian artists to exchange ideas with acclaimed and emerging artists from the United States, Britain, Ireland, Australia, India and other countries around the world.
Vallum pushes boundaries and invites the exploration of different worlds and perspectives. In addition to poetry, Vallum also publishes essays, interviews, book reviews, and visual art.

Notable past contributors include P.K. Page, Paul Muldoon, Franz Wright, Charles Simic, Les Murray, Jan Zwicky, Stephen Dunn, Karen Solie, John Kinsella, Fanny Howe, George Elliott Clarke, Andrew Motion, Erin Mouré, Peter Redgrove, Nicole Brossard, and others.

Vanderbilt University Press

Vanderbilt University Press extends the university’s scholarly mission by publishing dynamic, well-researched books for a global audience of engaged readers.

Established in 1940, Vanderbilt University Press is the principal publishing arm of one of the nation’s leading research universities. The Press’s primary mission is to select, produce, market, and disseminate scholarly publications of outstanding quality and originality. In conjunction with the long-term development of its editorial program, the Press draws on and supports the intellectual activities of the university and its faculty. Although its main emphasis falls in the area of scholarly publishing, the Press also publishes books of substance and significance that are of interest to the general public, including regional books. In this regard, the Press also supports Vanderbilt’s service and outreach to the larger local and national community.

Falling under the administrative aegis of Vanderbilt’s Provost, the chief academic officer of the university, the Press is an integral part of its parent institution. The Vanderbilt imprint is controlled by an Editorial Committee composed of twelve members of the university’s faculty and one external member. Prior to being presented to the Editorial Committee, manuscripts are evaluated by VU Press staff for list fit, viability, and quality. External peer review is also conducted to assess the execution of the manuscript’s goals and the quality of the work presented.

About Us
Our History
Printer Willy Wood operated this old (ATF Chief) printing press from 1973-1980, when Vehicule Press did its own printing.

Véhicule Press began in 1973 on the premises of Véhicule Art Inc., one of Canada’s first artist-run galleries. The large space occupied by both the gallery and the press at 61 Ste-Catherine St. West was once the Café Montmarte–a renowned jazz club of the 1930s. (See Stepping Out: The Golden Age of Montreal Night Clubs.) Guy Lavoie (designer of the Véhicule Press logo), Annie Nayer, Marshalore, and Vivian Jemelka-White began using equipment inherited from Kenny Hertz’s defunct Ingluvin Publications and an idle, ancient ATF Chief 20 printing press originally purchased by artist Tom Dean to print Beaux-Arts magazine.
In 1975 the press became Coopérative d’Imprimerie Véhicule–Quebec’s only cooperatively-owned printing and publishing company. Véhicule Press was the publishing imprint of the co-op. In late spring 1977, Véhicule Press moved to 1000 Clark Street in the heart of Chinatown, and in 1980 moved to an industrial space located on Ontario Street East.
