Coach House imprint zaagigin open for submissions

Coach House Books has announced that its new nonfiction imprint for Indigenous authors, zaagigin, is now accepting submissions.

zaagigin is an Anishinaabemowin word that describes a sprout coming out of the earth.

The advisory board, made up of Denise Bolduc, Hayden King, Emily Riddle and Kim Wheeler, will be acquiring titles for the imprint, which was announced earlier this year.

“As a collective of Indigenous editors, we are drawn to writing that offers compelling narratives of Indigenous land and life,” the imprint’s advisory board said in a release. “We aim to support authors who challenge readers on issues as varied as records of Indigenous resistance, the reclamation of Indigenous political, social, cultural and economic practices and contemporary Indigenous realities.”

Manuscripts and proposals on a number of topics, including land back and food sovereignty, Northern perspectives and urban Indigenous life, and Black and Indigenous solidarity are welcomed. Details about what is required of proposals and pitches can be found on Coach House’s website.
