Our mandate is to publish books that focus on Island culture, economy, and environment. We produce scholarly books for a popular audience as well as poetry, literary non-fiction, and drama.

Several of our titles have been shortlisted for Atlantic Book Awards including Listening for the Dead Bells, New London: The Lost Dream and Those Splendid Girls (historical, 2020; historical, 2016; and scholarly, 2015, respectively). Listening for the Dead Bells (2020) and Called to Serve (2019) were chosen for the PEI Publication of the Year Award.
