Dedicated to bringing fictional mountain stories to light.
Based in Canmore, Alberta and founded in late 2012, the Surveyors are dedicated to bringing fictional mountain stories to light.
We focus on telling the stories of the mountains, especially the Canadian Rockies, in fictional ways – a genre that is currently under-represented in the literature of the peaks.
Ours is the first generation that has no white spaces left on their maps. We invite our readers to reimagine those blank spots on the map with us.
In the great tradition of the surveyors that mapped these lands, we want to set up a metaphorical theodylite and bring the glass to bear on something unexpected…
That’s our focus: fictional mountain stories told in new ways. Hence our name:
Imaginary. Mountain. Surveyors.
