About Us

Celebrating Our Region in Word, Image and Sound

The Inlandia Institute is a lively center of literary activity serving the 29,000 sq. mile inland Southern California Region. It grew out of the highly acclaimed anthology Inlandia: A Literary Journey through California’s Inland Empire, published by Heyday Books in 2006 with the active participation of the Riverside Public Library.

The cultural programming that supported the anthology led to the development of the Inlandia Institute in 2007. Inlandia incorporated in 2009 and was granted non-profit status in 2012. The Institute’s tax ID number is 27-0586882.

Our mission is to recognize, support, and expand literary activity in all of its forms in the Inland Empire by publishing books and sponsoring programs that deepen people’s awareness, understanding, and appreciation of this unique, complex and creatively vibrant region.

We have a dedicated group of leaders: directors, staff, workshop leaders, and advisors and have forged partnerships throughout our region.
