At a time of unprecedented global change, t r a c e  press invites writers and readers to build community and solidarity through books and events.

We are a small, non-profit press committed to building beautiful, thought-provoking books that explore conflict, war, displacement, exile, migration, life, labour, love and resistance. We are unafraid to mix genres, voices, and languages.

We are indebted to the work of many amazing progressive and feminist presses around the world. 

We invite you to support our work and join our community. Your donations allow us to take on new writers and manuscripts to illuminate the spaces and times we live in. 

We are a qbipoc founded & run press, and our writers, editors and collaborators do not reflect the homogeneity of the statistics listed below:

 * The Association of Canadian Publishers’ 2018 Diversity Survey listed their respondents from the Canadian publishing industry as 82% white, 74% female, and 72% heterosexual. Lee & Low’s 2015 study of American publishing found similar numbers in the USA.
