Spinsters Ink was founded in upstate New York in 1978 to publish feminist books. In 1982, we moved to San Francisco and then merged with Aunt Lute Books (out of Iowa) in 1986 to become Spinsters/Aunt Lute Book Company. The Aunt Lute Foundation became a separate, non-profit publishing company in 1990 while Spinsters Ink moved to Minnesota in 1992. Today, we are housed in Duluth's Building for Women with other feminist organizations dedicated to serving women. Spinsters Ink publishes fiction and non-fiction that deal with significant issues in women's lives from a feminist perspective: books that not only name these crucial issues, but -- more important -- encourage change and growth. We are committed to publishing works by women writing from the periphery: fat women, Jewish women, lesbians, old women, poor women, rural women, women examining classism, women of color, women with disabilities, women who are writing books that help make the best in our lives more possible.
