Publishing Bursary in Honour of the late Luciana Ricciutelli Established at Centennial College

19 Apr 2019 10:49 AM | Dominecc Martin (Administrator)

[April 19, 2021] The Literary Press Group of Canada (LPG) has established the Luciana Ricciutelli Memorial Bursary at Centennial College, which will provide financial support to a student in the Publishing – Book, Magazine and Electronic graduate certificate program. The $1000 bursary will be offered annually to a woman or nonbinary person demonstrating financial need who is enrolled in the publishing program full-time or part-time.

Luciana Ricciutelli was Editor-in-Chief of Inanna Publications for 28 years. She led the development of Inanna’s book publishing program in 1996 and the launch of the press’s poetry and fiction series in 2004. She was also a force in the editing and production of Inanna’s feminist journal, Canadian Woman Studies / Les cahiers de la femme. A longtime LPG member, she served on the Board of Directors and was a fierce advocate of women’s rights and empowerment, as well as independent publishing. 

“Luciana was known for her generous mentorship of writers and publishing colleagues, as well as her commitment to feminist publishing,” said Laura Rock Gaughan, Executive Director of the LPG. “This bursary will assist a new publishing professional. It’s a fitting way to honour her legacy.”

The bursary will be offered for at least three years. Additional donations to the bursary fund may be made online through Centennial College. Donors should specify in the “Notes” field that the gift is to the Luciana Ricciutelli Memorial Bursary.
