Resources for Writers – SK Publishers Group


The Saskatchewan Publishers Group does not publish books. Rather, we are a Creative Industry Sector Organisation that represents book publishers in the province of Saskatchewan. Our mandate is to deliver services (such as shared promotion, Professional Development, marketing and display opportunities for member publishers’ books, etc.) to book publishers. If you are a writer wishing to find out more about how to get published, we have provided some information below, and we strongly encourage you to get in touch with our sister organisation, the Saskatchewan Writers Guild. The SWG has a number of fantastic programs and services for writers in all stages of their development, whether you’re just starting out, or have been writing for years. From the Manuscript Evaluation Service to the SWG’s facilitated retreats or workshops, you will find the SWG your one-stop shop for information about the art of writing, finding an agent, ‘shopping’ your manuscript, and finding a publisher.

We also encourage you to head to your local library and check out a book called “The Book Trade in Canada”, published by Quill and Quire. It has lists of literary agents, book publishers, and other book-y type stuff.
