Capital City Press

Capital City Press is a gathering place, both digitally and physically, for the exchange of ideas and education on the craft of writing. It gives EPL the opportunity to showcase and promote notable work from within our community, while also giving Edmontonians a chance to discover fantastic local writers and discuss their creations. Capital City Press aims to help support and grow writing in the community.
