Begun in 1986 as a student collective at Montreal’s Concordia University under the name Nuage Editions, the press became a sole proprietorship in 1991 and was relocated to Winnipeg in 1998. In 2001 the press name was changed to Signature Editions.
We publish seven to ten titles a year in the genres of literary fiction and mysteries, non-fiction, poetry, and drama. Signature specializes in Canadian writing of literary merit, with a list that includes established writers as well as newcomers. Our books have been honoured with many awards and nominations, including Governor General’s Awards, Manitoba Book Awards, and the CAA Awards.
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.
