We are the storytellers

Giving ordinary people access to the elite world of publishing. Journey Institute Press is a non-profit publishing house that focuses on telling the stories that otherwise would not be told with a focus on women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ authors.


A Note from the Publisher

We live in unprecedented times. A time when books are being banned at an alarming rate. Journey Institute Press stands against censorship in all its forms. As a publisher who focusses on minority communities and underrepresented artists such as bipoc and lgbtq+ authors we recognize that most, if not all, of our published works will end up on banned book lists. We stand with and support all those who are dedicated to free expression and who work to defend and expand access to books for everyone, including librarians, educators, booksellers, journalists, and the writers themselves.
