Who We Are:

WaveMaker Press started in 2021 to share our love of books with others. We believe in the power books have to uphold values and recreate norms, not to mention teach literacy and entertain! Importantly, they also have a role in Indigenizing a traditionally very colonial industry. We are honoured by all our contributors, friends, supporters and families. Thank you for allowing us to do what we love. We are located on the traditional territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation, BC, Canada.

Our Purpose:

To create accessible space in print for future wave-makers to stand up, speak out, and be heard through their creative processes of writing, artistry and storytelling. We do this by working with writers, artists, and storytellers from all backgrounds in a respectful way, with open minds, and through fair and transparent publication practices. We are blessed by every opportunity to inspire readers to write, artists to create, and daydreamers to envision a more inclusive future.

What is Inclusive Publishing?

Inclusive publishing is based on inclusive design, which refers to a design methodology used to create something with no barriers in the first place. An inclusive product is ‘born accessible’ when it is designed to work for as many people as possible right from the start, without modification. We strive to make ‘born accessible’ publications.
