Rose Garden Press is run by Michelle Arnett and Michele Vanderwal. With backgrounds in English literature, creative writing, book publishing (Michele), English literature, philosophy, and library science (Michelle), they create handmade poetry chapbooks by emerging and rooted Canadian voices. They publish work that features unexpected metaphors, rich imagery, and visceral/unique arrangements of thought. They are also interested in additional types of narrative devices, including stream of consciousness, belles lettres, and work that combines artistic elements (such as drawings, photos) with text.
