Mawenzi House publishes multicultural fiction, poetry, essays, and memoir

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. 

Mawnezi House focuses on works that can loosely be termed "multicultural" and particularly those that pertain to Asia and Africa. They publish six to eight titles of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction (literary criticism, history) per year. 

"Among our achievements: we have played a role in the formulation of the Indo-Caribbean identity through the publication of several ground-breaking titles; we have kept in print books by major Caribbean writers Sam Selvon, Ismith Khan, and John Stewart; we have published provocative and  perceptive social and literary critical works by Arnold Itwaru, Arun Prabha Mukherjee, Chelva Kanaganayakam, and others; the introduction of the important Zimbabwean writer Yvonne Vera; the first historical and critical study of Chinese Canadian writing in English; the first anthologies of South Asian Canadian literature, South Asian Canadian women's poetry, Chinese Canadian stories, and South Asian Canadian and American women's fiction."
