THE ACORN PRESS was founded in 1994 by editor, poet, and publisher Laurie Brinklow, as the fulfillment of her long-standing dream to have her own publishing company. The Acorn Press is based in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Prince Edward Island, though Canada’s smallest province, has produced some of Canada’s most important literature, including the novels of L. M. Montgomery (including the children’s classic Anne of Green Gables) and the poetry of Canada’s People’s Poet, Milton Acorn.
Works published by the Acorn Press continue the PEI tradition of literature with local interest and global appeal. The Acorn Press takes as its particular goal and mandate to help encourage the flourishing literary culture of Prince Edward Island by publishing “Books about Prince Edward Island by Prince Edward Islanders.” The Acorn Press combines high editorial standards with excellent local design and printing to craft fine books of poetry, fiction, history, folklore, and literature for children.
