New website Literary Hub includes Canadian publishers

According to Quill & Quire, “Canadian publishers House of Anansi Press and Arsenal Pulp Press have partnered with Literary Hub, a new U.S. website aiming to promote literature and book culture.”

“A joint initiative of Grove Atlantic and the online books magazine Electric Literature, LitHub launched Wednesday with more than 100 content contributors, including publishers, small presses, booksellers, and literary publications. Both Arsenal Pulp and Anansi were approached directly to be part of the project.”

The LitHub website describes itself as being “in the service of literary culture, a single, trusted, daily source for all the news, ideas and richness of contemporary literary life.”

“There is more great literary content online than ever before, but it is scattered, easily lost. With the help of its partners—publishers big and small, journals, bookstores and non-profits—Literary Hub will be a place where readers can return each day for smart, engaged, and entertaining writing about all things books.”
