About Us

What’s after happening now?

Such an action-packed question. Not only does “after” appear prominently in this wonderfully dynamic saying, it’s also a key word in storytelling, pushing the narrative forward. Hence the concept of After Books.

Newfoundland and Labrador has a rich literary culture and After Books is committed to contributing to that culture by adding to the diversity of voices sharing stories that both reflect our experiences and shape our path forward.

What are we publishing?

After Books is deeply committed to the writer’s experience and aims to provide opportunities for both emerging and established writers through anthologies and full length works of fiction, folklore and nonfiction. Our catalogue of books will have a particular relevance to this province, be it through subject matter, the author’s personal connection to Newfoundland and Labrador, or some combination of the two.
