Inanna Publications and Education Inc. was founded in 1978 with the goal of making current writing and research on a wide variety of feminist topics accessible to the largest possible community of women. With the publication of our journal, Canadian Woman Studies/les cahiers de la femme, we have created a forum in which women in Canada and around the world can exchange ideas, personal experiences, expertise and creativity, serving as a middle ground between the scholarly and the popular, between theory and activism. We welcome fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction and essays on ideas, society, politics, culture and the arts that speak to the diverse lives of women around the world. While we do not restrict our always-expanding sense of what makes a contribution "feminist" -- we strive for a presentation of different perspectives -- we will not publish writing that is sexist, racist, homophobic or in any other way discriminatory or harmful to women.

If you are interested in submitting, please familiarize yourself with the books we have published in the past to ensure that your manuscript is a good fit for Inanna.
