The Peaceful World of Portage & Main Press

Thursday, April 17, 2014


A Little About Portage & Main Press...Portage & Main Press (PMP) publishes educational books, and under its imprint HighWater Press, publishes graphic novels, picture books, and literature. PMP is located in the historic Exchange District of Winnipeg, Manitoba, in a renovated warehouse only blocks away from the intersection of Portage Avenue and Main Street. The company employs eight full-time staff and contracts with numerous contributors in Winnipeg and from across Canada.

Our office space has been described by many guests as "peaceful" and "beautiful." Natural light spills into the common rooms through the 15′ windows in each individual office. The space suits the contemplative work of the editorial department and provides a creative backdrop for marketing and promotional brainstorming. It can be a refuge for educators dropping in for a meeting during their busy school day, a comfortable place for local and visiting authors to discuss their works, or it can be converted into a lively public space for book launches. Come visit anytime!
