Founded in 2013 by Marie-Douce St-Jacques, and designed by Baptiste Alchourroun and Amandine Guillard, Le laps (“The lapse”) is an independent, Montréal-based publisher specializing in texts on the margins of literature, with a focus on singular sensibilities from artists of all backgrounds. Le laps opens up gaps and crevices to let these luminous voices escape and be heard.
Despite our moderate pace of publication (maximum one book per year), we are open to manuscript submissions. Please note that we only publish essays, reflections, notebooks, and conceptual or experimental projects, primarily in the arts field. We do not consider fiction and poetry manuscripts.
Our books are printed on Rolland Enviro 100% recycled paper.
