Publishing distinctive literary works by creators living and loving Northern Ontario, as well as works about the unique landscape and culture of the north.
Curating the voice of northern Ontario.
Latitude 46 Publishing was established in 2015 with a goal to publish distinctive literary works by established and emerging authors with a connection to northern Ontario, as well as narratives about the unique landscape and culture of the region. We seek to uncover the untold stories of the North, both fiction and non-fiction, although we’re equally interested in representing diverse storytellers who can bring ideas and facts to life. Latitude 46 Publishing is located in Sudbury, ON, along the 46th parallel, where founders and publishers Heather Campbell and Laura Gregorini live and write. In 2016 our focus is on female writers to reflect the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote in Canada.
Heather has spent over 25 years in communications and freelance writing, specializing in issues relevant to Northern Ontario communities. A graduate of York University (BA Sociology ’92), she has combined her education, experience and ‘need to initiate’ by starting a local chapter of the Professional Writers Association of Canada and the Wordstock Sudbury Literary Festival. Joining forces with Laura to start a new publishing house for the North is a natural extension of how she can contribute to creating a thriving literary scene in Northern Ontario.

Is northern Ontario your home?
Sudbury falls on the 46th parallel but that certainly doesn’t mean you need to live here to be considered. We are a talented bunch but we do things a little different in the North and if you capture that essence, we’d like to read it. HOWEVER you must call Northern Ontario home. Although you don’t have to write about the North, we’ll prioritize stories that are inspired by, or, based in the region.
