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. 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.
