Activities

The Association of Manitoba Book Publishers (AMBP) is pleased to work in support of Manitoba publishers. Our members publish a wide variety of books in English, French and Indigenous languages by diverse contributors in Canada that are read in Manitoba and worldwide. Each year, our members publish about 100 books.

Some of our activities include:

  • providing current information, ideas and resources on publishing to our members and the general public
  • coordinating joint marketing projects such as Prairie books NOW, a publication about Prairie publishers and writers, available to book-lovers free of charge at Prairie bookstores, libraries and other locations throughout Canada
  • participating in the Manitoba Book Awards/Les Prix du livre du Manitoba coalition. The awards celebrate excellence in Manitoba writing, publishing, book design and illustration!
  • promoting members’ titles through various outreach projects, displays and trade initiatives
  • representing our members’ interests and advocating for them on issues of importance to the continued creation of Manitoba books
