Emmanuelle Collas has founded her publishing house in 2008, with an annual production of about eight titles, mainly of French and foreign literature. In 2020, the publishing house won the Prix Goncourt des lycéens with Les impatientes by Djaïli Amadou Amal. Its catalogue includes about twenty titles, with authors such as Grażyna Plebanek, Selahattin Demirtaş, Nâzım Hikmet, Anouar Benmalek, Dora Djann, Zadig Hamroune, Sabrina Kassa, Mutt-Lon, Sema Kılıçkaya and Prajwal Parajuly. 

Alma éditeur was founded in 2011 by Jean-Maurice de Montremy and Catherine Argand. Initially open to litterature and humanities, the catalogue has been refocused on French fiction since january 2022, when Laure Defiolles took over the editorial managment of the house.

The texts published by Alma seek as much to apprehend in an original way the contemporary world in which we live, in order to better grasp its complexities and paradoxes. A litterature that holds and carries us away through the writing and the voice of an author, while leaving room for the imagination and the construction of a universe, with the same high standards. 

Le Cheval d'août is a Canadian publishing house founded in 2014 by Geneviève Thibault and based in Montreal. The publishing house aims to promote emerging Canadian literature.

L'Arbre vengeur was founded in 2003 and it is specialized in fiction. It publishes contemporary French and foreign authors, as well as reprints or unpublished works. Their publications are in bookshops that have not given up on the plurality of existing worlds in publishing, its catalogue focuses on insolence over false innocence (an illusion in literature), style over cultural cliché (an invasion), humour over seriousness (the virtue of fools). A rare gem in the publishing world!

Édito belongs to Gallimard Canada and has been founded in 2014. Since 2015, they added a new series to their catalogue: Édito Jeunesse, publishing children’s literature, mainly picture books. Publishing books to open one’s mind, to raise awareness, to brighten up intelligence, to bring a new reflection and to call for action, this is the core of their editorial line. 

Initially focused on the publication of scientific and political essays, the publishing house La Ville brûle, founded in 2009, has gradually opened up to children's literature. With the idea that "it is never too early to talk about politics, feminism, economics or ecology".


Éditions Bruno Doucey was founded in 2010 by the poet Bruno Doucey - after eight years at the head of Éditions Seghers - and the novelist Murielle Szac. Their ambition? To open up poetry to as many people as possible. With nearly 210 titles, thousands of readers around the world and a growing presence in bookshops, this ambition is more relevant than ever. Their credo is to bring the voice of contemporary poets wherever it can be heard, on the literary stage, but also in schools, streets, prisons, gardens... A tireless fieldwork, driven by the conviction that poetry is vital, all the more so in troubled times. It helps us to think, to fight against all forms of extremism, racism, fundamentalism and totalitarianism. It brings people together instead of dividing them. It speaks the language of brotherhood. A living and generous poetry, open and offered to all, a poetry that opens our horizons and makes us stronger together, that is the poetry that this publishing house wants to promote.
