About Us

The primary purpose of The Miramichi Reader is to highlight Canadian authors and poets as well as books of interest to all Canadians, coast to coast to coast. We strive to support the smaller publishing houses as well as new authors when possible. There is a wealth of talent out there and they often fly under the radar of the mainstream media outlets. As one author so eloquently put it: We work to “unearth the unsung gems.
