Lazara Press is a progressive publishing house located on the traditional, ancestral, unceded lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations
in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
It was founded in 1982 by Penny Goldsmith, its current owner. We publish poetry, literature, broadsides, and chapbooks.
We also publish non-fiction work which address current issues of interest and concern.
The press is also committed to publishing, keeping in print and distributing works that might not otherwise be available.
To that end, we also carry titles from some authors whose books, for various reasons, are no longer available from their original publishers.
