Trap Door, an imprint of Nevermore Press, publishes books for middle grade and YA readers.

We believe dreamers and storytellers are educators who inspire children and provide them with a refuge in what is often a confusing and chaotic world.

The tradition of storytelling is ancient, ever changing and growing, providing companionship and insight. Young readers deserve books that respect and challenge their minds. Books should provide an entryway into answering the questions the world around the reader presents, as well as to worlds yet to be encountered.

We hope our books will provide this trap door.

Trap Door seeks Atlantic Canadian writers, in particular previously unpublished authors, who create high quality, character driven fiction and creative nonfiction. Check out our submission guidelines.
