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. They seek to uncover the untold stories of the North, both fiction and non-fiction, although they are 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 Stradiotto live and write. Latitude 46 Publishing is a member of the Literary Press Group and Ontario Book Publishers Organization.
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.
