Cape Breton University Press, Part 1

Cape Breton University Press was created in 1974, concurrent with creation of the College of Cape Breton (later UCCB and now CBU), with a view to filling a gap in the publication of Cape Breton literature. The Press reflected the school’s early mandate for locally driven knowledge translation and added positively to the institution’s profile.

The current mandate of CBU Press is to publish Atlantic Canada literature, with a particular interest in Cape Breton Island. CBU Press fulfills a critical role within the community through the development, encouragement, dissemination and promotion of literature and scholarship in local, regional, national and international markets.

CBU Press is owned and operated by the University. In addition, a volunteer advisory board made up of eight people from the business, cultural and literary community advises the president of the University on planning and priority issues. Over the years the Press has taken positive measures that have resulted in a vibrant and stable regional presence, including recognition of professionalism as defined by The Canada Council for the Arts and other funding bodies. The Press, assisted by the Board, engages in ongoing and fluid planning and monitoring of its goals and objectives. As well, the Board reviews the Press’s priority streams to ensure both balance in its choice of publications, talent and under-represented voices. Presently, priorities include: literary fiction and non-fiction for adults and young adults; social, economic and community development; culture and heritage (including Acadian, Aboriginal and Gaelic).

CBU Press is committed to a high level of literary and artistic merit and to quality layout and design; our publications are consistently shortlisted for regional awards. Where possible, the Press includes the work of local artists on book exteriors. CBU Press benefits by distribution, fulfilment and trade sales/representation through Nimbus Publishing, Atlantic Canada’s largest publisher and distributor, and through them a national sales force bringing Cape Breton literature to wider and wider audiences. Academic publications sales representatives are Brunswick Books (formerly Fernwood Books), whose national sales team concentrate on that market.

As one of Nova Scotia’s longest-established publishers and housed within one of the province’s youngest universities (both established in 1974), CBU Press continues to make important contributions to the communities of the island and the region by chronicling the stories of its people and cultures. Since its inception, it has introduced new writers to readers throughout Canada and abroad and in recent years has begun to attract the attention of scholars and writers from outside of the region who seek to have their work published here.

Notwithstanding a desire to reach farther and farther beyond our shores, CBU Press is committed to an emphasis on regional literature and on Cape Breton, which boasts a highly expressive culture appreciated the world over.
