Word & Deed Publishing has been growing expontentially as people continue to connect with our focus on issues of education that are connected to social justice and equity. We encourage anyone who shares our vision that schools are places where all children must receive equitable opportunities for success and where the status quo must be challenged. Our resources support all educators with making significant changes in the lives of students and their families.
Our authors range from academics to engaged citizens, all hoping that their book resonates with others seeking to change the existing paradigm. While many of our books are integrated into post-secondary course use, this does not mean they aren't accessible to a wider audience. Our team of editors works directly with each author, and will provide you and your book with the necessary support.
We are selective, however, in that the content of the book needs to align with our company's values of equity and social justice. The beginning of the process involves speaking with Darrin Griffiths, Director of Acquisitions, to go over your ideas.
