Who are we?
Pop Seagull Publishing is a brand, spanking new indie e-book and print-on-demand publisher of fantasy, horror and science fiction stories, owned and operated by author Elizabeth Hirst. It was founded in May of 2011, when Miss Hirst decided that she needed to be the change that she wanted to see in book publishing, and explore new, electronic avenues of publication.

Miss Hirst is a graduate of Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario, with a Master’s Degree in English Literature. Her specialty is Victorian pulp literature and contemporary fantasy, and her final paper discussed the post-colonial implications of geography and space in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. She is a graduate of the Odyssey Fantasy Writing Workshop, Class of 2006, and she cannot recommend this program enough to anyone who wants to bring their writing up to a professional level, and meet lots of other wonderful, creative people. Her work has appeared in Alien Skin Magazine, Mystic Signals 3 Anthology, and she also worked as a creative writer for the popular Facebook apps Mousehunt and Levynlight, while working for Hitgrab Inc. Liz is also a visual artist who is currently studying animation at Sheridan College in Oakville. The Pop Seagull Logo is her own design, and so are the cover layouts for all of her books, with the exception of her upcoming novel. In her spare time, Liz enjoys reading and talking (and talking, and talking) about books, playing video games, and feeding her fashion addiction. She also loves almost everything Disney.
