Like us, you’re probably missing the buzz of an in-person WOTS marketplace—the bright tents, the excited chatter about stories, the sense of discovery in the air.

That’s why we’ve reimagined The Word On The Street’s marketplace for the virtual space.

This year, you can browse the finest Canadian & Indigenous publishers, bookstores, magazines, and arts organizations all year long. No waiting ’til September for a virtual marketplace—discover great deals & conversations from WOTS exhibitors every week in your inbox!

ECW Press is an independent trade publisher with over 40 years of history. They have a diverse, vibrant, and completely unique catalogue that includes poetry and literary fiction, genre fiction, pop culture, political analysis, sports books, and biographies. ECW books have received many accolades over the years, consistently winning major literary awards and garnering starred reviews.

ECW has evolved over the years and the acronym has stood for many things: endless cat whiskers, eating cheese at work, epic competitive wrestling. But for the most part, they like to say that the three letters of the name each represent a particular strain of ECW Press’s diverse passions — Entertainment, Culture, and Writing. 

In honour of Earth Week and Word on the Street Toronto, they’re featuring their environmental titles and some that show Toronto love.
