In/Words is a magazine about Canadian culture and ethics with an emphasis on literary fiction, poetry and art. The tone is intelligent and sensitive, with a particular taste for wittiness and diversity.

The editing team rotates each year and consists of current Carleton University students, operating out of its office high up on the 19th floor of the giant Dunton Tower, looking past the Rideau Canal to downtown Ottawa.

In/Words strives to be conscious of the traditional importance of small press publishing in Canada while actively contributing to (and thus shaping) the local literary arts scene. In/Words maintains a preference for exciting and emerging voices who are not as easily located in more traditional publishing units. Although In/Words runs out of Carleton University, authors published exceed far beyond the bounds of campus, stretching through Ottawa, Canada and in some cases the whole world.
