At Wharfinger's Press, we work with our writers and clients directly as they pursue their own their literary journey. From an idea and rough draft, to editing and publication, Wharfinger's Press helps our authors produce high quality, interesting and entertaining books.
We incorporate principles partly drawn from Small Batch/Microbrew publishing and from the D.I.Y. and Right to Repair movements to create a 'Homebrew' publishing manifesto that introduces a new approach to the industry. It benefits individual authors and promotes cultural diversity by bringing non-mainstream titles to market in a cost effective way while prioritizing quality and the customer's requirements.
Wharfinger's Press is also the first publishing company to actively pursue the advantages of harnessing neurodivergence and D.I.Y. ethics to act and think differently as a company. Small batch, non-mainstream writers are a resource to us, whereas most of the rest of the industry sees them as an unfortunate, insufficiently profitable ventures. We see niche marketing as an opportunity for tailoring success well in localized Canadian markets as well as internationally.
