The Latin word, Inspiritus, means “breathe” and contains the word for “spirit”: together, to breathe in and be filled with the spirit, which is what it means to be alive. It is also the root for the word inspiration and in the creative sense, to be filled with the Muses, to be filled with the gods or God. The logo represents a breath of air, a gust of wind, the winds of change, and a spirit, a force, that carves its way forward.

In the word is also our philosophy of community, “In Spirit, Us.”

Inspiritus Press is an independent publisher based in Toronto, Canada. We specialize in poetry and fiction, and often incorporate art, photography and other forms of media in our productions. Inspiritus Press and its team has also helped found Crossroads Literary Festival, Bring the Noise Street Poetry Tour, Wattpad Literary Fiction Network, and other events or initiatives. We love to break boundaries, build communities, and explore the ineffable, the strange, and the out-of-body.
