Inanna Publications and Education Inc. is one of only a very few independent feminist presses in Canada committed to publishing fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction by and about women, and complementing this with relevant non-fiction, that bring new, innovative and diverse perspectives with the potential to change and enhance women’s lives everywhere. Our aim is to conserve a publishing space dedicated to feminist voices that provoke discussion, advance feminist thought, and speak to diverse lives of women. We have always been particularly interested in ensuring that the voices of disenfranchised and marginalized women are heard and we are committed to working closely with talented, emerging writers, as well as established writers. Founded in 1978 with the goal of making current writing on a wide variety of feminist topics accessible to the largest possible community of readers, Inanna is the proud publisher of one of Canada’s oldest feminist journals, Canadian Woman Studies/les cahiers de la femme. While many of our previous titles were published in response to the needs of the educational market, the level of response and trade sales received by many of our titles encouraged us to move in a new direction and, in 2004, we launched the Inanna Poetry and Fiction Series.

Our editorial policy is to publish visionary books that reflect the depth, breadth and diversity of women’s lives across Canada and around the world. Our priorities are to publish literary books, in particular by fresh, new Canadian voices, that are intellectually rigorous, speak to women’s hearts, and tell truths about the lives of the broad diversity of women—smart books for people who want to read and think about real women’s lives.

Inanna publications are important resources, widely used in university courses across the country. Our books are essential for any curriculum and are indispensable to the feminist reader.

Inanna Publications is a member of the Association for Canadian Publishers, the Ontario Book Publishers Organization, and the Literary Press Group of Canada.
