The press is committed to promoting work written by Maritime and Newfoundland writers and first-time authors, and publishes a wide range of fiction and non-fiction about Atlantic Canada, including biography, history, health and the environment.
Pottersfield Press books have received numerous awards, including the Milton Acorn People's Poet of Canada Award, Air Canada Award, Dartmouth Book Award and the Evelyn Richardson Award for best nonfiction book. Many of Pottersfield's children's books have been selected for the "Our Choice" list by the Canadian Children's Book Centre. The press is based in Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia, and its books are distributed in Canada and the United States by Nimbus Publishing.
