MOON JELLY HOUSE
chapbooks from diverse authors
Founded in 2020, Moon Jelly House is a partnership publishing house based out of Edmonton, Alberta. At Moon Jelly House our goal is to publish diverse, emergent, marginalized writers in short-run chapbooks. We pride ourselves on gathering diverse perspectives and giving a platform to writers who have had to fight, push, and breathe heavy to make space for their essential stories.
We will be publishing 8 titles in the 2020-2021 season. You can meet our authors here.
