Mawenzi House

Mawenzi House is dedicated to bringing to the reading public fresh new writing from Canada and across the world that reflects the diversity of our rapidly globalizing world, particularly in Canada and the United States. Our focus is on works that can loosely be termed “multicultural” and particularly those that pertain to Asia and Africa. We publish 10-12 titles of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction (literary criticism, history) per year.

Our mission is to promote literature that reflects the growing cultural diversity of Canada. We aim, specifically, to encourage the production and exposition of the literary arts–fiction, poetry, essays, literary criticism, and memoirs–that reflect non-Western experiences, cultural values, traditions, and histories. 

“. . .changing our understanding of the Canadian literary landscape through its innovative publications.”
