About Womancraft Publishing
Womancraft Publishing is committed to sharing powerful new women’s voices, through a collaborative creative process. It was founded in 2014 by Amazon-bestselling author, Lucy H. Pearce, and is based in East Cork, Ireland. Our authors are based in the US, Ireland, Switzerland, Portugal, Canada and the UK, and several of our titles are in multiple languages – 9 so far.
Our books have been endorsed by many of our heroines… and heroes: Dr Christiane Northrup, Oriah Mountain Dreamer, Glennie Kindred, Naomi Lowinsky, Jane Meredith, Steve Biddulph, Dr Michel Odent, Miranda Gray, Lynne Franks, Phyllis Curot, Jeanine Cummins… and treasured as “life-changing” by women around the world.
Womancraft Publishing was founded on the revolutionary vision that women and words can change the world. We act as midwife to transformational women’s words that have the power to challenge, inspire, heal and speak to the silenced aspects of ourselves.
We share powerful new voices with new visionary ideas, empowering our readers to actively co-create cultures that value and support the female and feminine. This to us is deeply exciting and powerful work.
At the heart of our Womancraft philosophy is fairness and integrity. Creatives and women have always been underpaid: not on our watch! We split royalties 50:50 with our authors. We offer support and mentoring throughout the publishing process as standard. We use almost exclusively female artists on our covers, and as well as paying fairly for these cover images, offer a royalty share and promote the artists both in the books and online. We pay the living wage to our employees and provide flexible working practices that centre family, menstrual and health needs. We pride ourselves on being fair, open and accountable. Our books have been #1 Amazon bestsellers in many categories, Nautilus and Women’s Spirituality Award winners.
We are proud that Womancraft is walking its talk, living the new paradigm in the crumbling heart of the old: through financially empowering creative people, through words that honour the feminine, through healthy working practices, and through integrating business with our lives, and rooting our economic decisions in what supports and sustains our natural environment. I hope that one day soon, what we do is seen as nothing remarkable, just the norm.
We work on a full circle model of giving and receiving: reaching backwards, supporting Treesisters’ reforestation projects and the UNHCR girls’ education fund, and forwards via Worldreader, providing e-books at no-cost to education projects for girls and women in developing countries. We donate many paperback copies to menstrual education projects, red tents, women’s groups and women’s libraries around the world including: India, South Africa, Haiti, USA, Canada, UK, Ireland and France… As we grow, we can give more back.
We build alliances with independent, women-run media outlets in order to share our books. We do not market to women, but speak from our place within the circle of women, sharing our vision, and encouraging them to share it onwards, in ever-widening circles.
We are honoured that the Womancraft community is growing internationally year on year, seeding red tents, book groups, women’s circles, ceremonies and classes into the fabric of our world.
We are the change we want to see in this world. Thank you for your presence in making this dream a reality.
