PS Guelph was initiated in 2013 by Musagetes, a charitable foundation for the arts based in Guelph, in collaboration with a few book-loving arts community members. The first studio space was shared with Silence, an experimental music series. PS Guelph is now housed in an alcove at Boarding House Arts, a shared-use building on the edge of downtown where Musagates, the Jazz fest, a few gallery spaces, artist studios, and other businesses are co-tenants. PS Guelph's roster of books includes both Guelph-centric and internationally-focused works, including books of poetry, art books, graphic works, collections of essays, an abécédaire on improvisation, a musical workbook, an early Gothic novel, and books that explore queer culture in different communities.
