Thistledown Press is a 45-year-old publishing company embarking on a new phase of its existence with a change of ownership in fall 2020. The new team at Thistledown is delighted to be an active force in the Canadian literary landscape, producing original, engaging, and thought-provoking books by new and established Canadian authors, while at the same time honouring our past as a legacy press founded in Saskatoon in 1975.

Founded in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 1975, Thistledown Press began as a venue for new Prairie writers, and soon burgeoned into a publisher of emerging and established writers from across Canada. The press came under new ownership in 2020, and the new team is proud to carry on Thistledown’s commitment to publishing Canadian literary writing, with a particular focus on authors from Western Canada. Our current program features fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. We publish books for adult, young adult, juvenile, and (occasionally) very young readers. An independent literary publisher of high editorial standards, producing beautifully designed books for distribution across Canada and the US, we remain based in Saskatoon with an office in the heart of the vibrant Riversdale neighbourhood.
