Porcupines Quill gets $18,000 in federal support

ERIN - Porcupine’s Quill will continue to connect Canadian authors with readers in Canada and around the world, thanks to a recent grant from the government of Canada.

Porcupine’s Quill is a literary press, based in Erin, which publishes award-winning works of poetry, fiction and non-fiction.

Federal funding of $18,302 came through a Support for Publishers stream of the Canada Book Fund.

Its objective is to ensure access to a diverse range of Canadian-authored books in Canada and abroad by fostering a strong Canadian book industry that publishes and markets Canadian-authored books.

The funding was announced on Nov. 30 by Wellington-Halton Hills MP Michael Chong on behalf of James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages.

“Our government received a strong mandate from Canadians to invest in organizations like Porcupine’s Quill,” said Moore. “By supporting this publisher, our government is delivering on its commitment to strengthen our economy and support our arts, culture, and heritage.”

Said Chong, “Porcupine’s Quill is known for the award-winning beauty and quality of its books.

“Our government’s support will help this publisher continue its work of introducing readers everywhere to the delights of reading Canadian authors.”

Publisher Tim Inkster, said, “The Porcupine’s Quill has built, since 1974, an enviable reputation for expertise in the use of 20th-century offset printing technology to replicate the quality look and feel of a 19th-century letterpress product.”
