Small Walker Press

The Small Walker Press addresses the research and creative interests of faculty members at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts at Brock University, and engages with authors, artists and academics alike to produce small, innovative publications.

We publish collaborative work that brings together authors and artists from the Niagara Region as well as the Canadian or international contexts. Fields covered include all disciplines and creative practices taught and researched at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts (Arts and Culture, Visual Arts, Music, Dramatic Arts) as well as creative writing.

Examples include, but are not limited to, exhibition catalogues, artist’s books, chap books, short essay format and creative writing as well as online art folios or editions and recorded sound work or interviews. Publications may be in English, French or other languages.

The Small Walker Press is predicated on and values interdisciplinary cooperation and the exploration of image and text. It seeks to contribute to and participate in the promotion of book culture.
