Founded in 1972 by one of Canada’s most recognized man of letters, Barry Callaghan, Exile Editions and ELQ/Exile: The Literary Quarterly specialize in finding and developing Canadian writers of fiction, poetry, drama, and non-fiction, as well as visual artists engaged in painting, photography, illustration and other fine arts disciplines.

The two houses have published close to 500 books and over 160 issues of a literary/arts magazine that has featured close to 2,000 contributions. This body of published works is impressive, the result of a shared editorial vision, one that looks to make it possible for writers, artists and readers to benefit from a vibrant, accessible and pluralistic arts environment that enables a culture of discovery and expression through literary and artistic diversity.

And Exile Editions and ELQ/Exile continue to evolve in their support of a vital and diverse Canadian arts ecology. Each year’s list of books, and on average 60 contributors annually appearing in the magazine, speak to people across Canada, and to those in each country that enjoy Canadian writing. Our editorial team knows what readers expect is very different from coast to coast to coast. This also holds true for what someone in the U.K., Australia, Europe, Latin American or the Japan expects. Thus, year after year, Exile Editions and ELQ/Exile build upon their dedication to advancing contemporary literary and visual arts: in our pages anyone can expand their sense of self and find different ways of thinking.

ELQ/Exile is published quarterly as an 8″x10″ 96 page magazine that presents a rich and varied selection of new and established authors and artists. We draw our material from English and French Canada, as well as from the U.S., Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Asia and all around the world.

Exile Editions publishes distinctive Canadian writers and artists who represent the country’s multicultural and multiracial make up. Our books look to engage all readers with a diversity of works by senior, mid-career and emerging/new generation writers, along with works by francophones in translation, the culturally diverse, the marginalized, and Indigenous talents.
