Mémoire d’encrier was founded in March 2003 in Montréal by the writer Rodney SAINT-ÉLOI. It publishes works of fiction: novels, novellas, short stories, poetry, essays and accounts. Mémoire d‘encrier offers a varied catalogue that builds bridges between cultures and imagination in the North and South. The basic idea underlying our work is that of dialogue between cultures in a perspective of solidarity and of accepting the Other. Mémoire d’encrier is geared around a body of over a hundred works by authors from Canada, Quebec, the Caribbean, Native America, Africa, and Europe. The goal being to refuse exclusion and to redefine collective living.
Mémoire d’encrier : enraciner l’encre (l’écrit) dans le patrimoine oral. Associer la mémoire à l’écrit ; associer en ce sens littérature (écrits) et oraliture (traditions orales) ; assumer la continuité entre mémoire et modernité.
