Kwirk is an independent publishing company based in Vancouver, Washington. Our mission is to create stories that connect with readers by not holding back any punches on difficult subject matters, and presenting LGBTQ+ characters who break the stereotypical mold. 


Founded in 1993 to differentiate books for a more mature audience from children's titles, Kwirk blossomed out of Kids Ink Books as a division for Young Adult novels to flourish. In 2012, Kids Ink was fully enveloped into the Kwirk brand to engender the vision of a connected universe of stories.
