Rose Garden Press is run by Michelle Arnett and Michele Vanderwal. With backgrounds in English literature, creative writing, book publishing (Michele), English literature, philosophy, and library science (Michelle), we create handmade poetry chapbooks by blossoming and rooted Canadian voices.
We publish work that features unexpected metaphors, rich imagery, and visceral/unique arrangements of thought. We’re also interested in additional types of narrative devices, including stream of consciousness, belles lettres, and work that combines artistic elements (such as drawings, photos) with text.
