In House: Freehand Books

Freehand Books was founded in 2007 with a simple mandate: to publish excellent Canadian literature.

And they started off with a bang—Melanie Little, Freehand's first Managing Editor, published Marina Endicott's Giller Prize-nominated Good to a Fault as the press's debut title. In addition to the Giller nod, Quill & Quire named Freehand "Rookie of the Year" and CBA nominated them for Small Press of the Year in 2008.
