Breakwater Books was founded in 1973 to showcase the high quality writing and storytelling that exists in Newfoundland and Labrador. Since our founding, our focus has broadened to include outstanding authors from across Canada, and we occasionally complement our list by acquiring books from foreign publishers.
Breakwater publishes high quality literature in all genres — literary and commercial fiction, non-fiction, plays, poetry, and children’s books, as well as educational curricula — while continuing to promote culturally significant backlist titles.
All Lit Up is produced by the Literary Press Group and LitDistCo. LPG and LitDistCo acknowledge the financial support of the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Ontario Arts Council.
