About us

The craft brewing of publishing. Fair trade. Very quaffable. New nonfiction at just-right lengths by emerging & award-winning writers.

Nonvella is a new, independent publisher of long-form nonfiction by authors from Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. We publish print editions and ebooks. 

We coined the word ‘nonvella’ for the kind of nonfiction that we love to read, and to write: pieces that run to the length of a fictional novella (5,000 to 20,000 words). 

Our specialty is timely, memorable works of nonfiction—narrative journalism, reportage, adventure writing, memoirs, essays—that can be read in a single sitting.
