Since our founding in 1965, Coach House has been committed to printing and publishing innovative poetry of the highest quality. With that mandate in mind, we want to make sure we're doing all that we can to share our poets' work with you!

Huge congratulations to Brecken Hancock, who is a finalist for the Trillium Book Award for Poetry for Broom Broom

Coffee Room

Have you heard the news? Coach House is starting a book club! We're calling it — get ready — the Coach House Book Club. 

Why are we starting a book club, you ask? Well, we feel this isn't so much a book club as it is a gathering of the Coach House community and those who want to get to know their favourite author in an informal, relaxed setting — but just calling it a 'book club' seemed like the clearest way of encapsulating all of that.

Events

BookExpo America (BEA) is one of the biggest publishing events in North America, offering the book industry access to new titles, authors, networking, and education about the publishing industry. You can find Coach House Books once again in Consortium Alley, at booth #648. More details to come!

SLS is hosting workshops in its hometown of Montreal as part of an ongoing series of mini-programs! Join Summer Literary Seminars for our next 4-day intensive event (May 28 - 31), to be held in a city like no other, featuring our very own David McGimpsey (Asbestos Heights) and Damian Rogers (Dear Leader). 

The editors of The Ward and several contributors will host a panel on a selected topic at City Hall. More details tk, but in the meantime, mark your calendars!
