Folly House Press

Marshall Feit, from left, Isaac Vallentin and Mike Bigelow collaborate on a manuscript for Folly House Press, which they launched in November. The three men want to help authors publish their works and have also created a quarterly poetry contest.

Owners of a new publishing press based out of Pictou are hoping to give local authors a chance to be published.

Isaac Vallentin, Mike Bigelow and Marshall Feit created Folly House Press, with Bigelow’s book of poems being the catalyst for the business.
