As described by the Globe and Mail, The ReLit awards are “the country’s pre-eminent literary prize recognizing independent presses.” This is a a well-regarded award, and Breakwater is thrilled to have three titles nominated this year!

Nicole Lundrigan’s The Seary Line and Glen Carter’s Angels of Maradona have been nominated for the fiction award, and Boyd Chubbs’ Feral Domicile for the poetry award.

The Seary Line by Nicole Lundrigan

“[The Seary Line] is a character-driven tale and Lundrigan’s gift is to create memorable ones. There’s more than enough suspense to keep the story moving and the settings are great.”
– Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail

Feral Domicile by Boyd Chubbs

“All golden books are Bibles — art illuminated and brilliant with vision. Few poets succeed in making such books. Among English Canadians, there are Leonard Cohen and Gwendolyn MacEwen. And let us add Boyd Warren Chubbs.”
– George Elliot Clark, Governor General’s award winner for poetry

Nicole Lundrigan Receives Honourable Mention for the 2009 Sunburst Award

the-seary-line-blogWe’re thrilled for Nicole, whose book has received nothing but praise since its release last September. So much so that Globe critics and awards jurors seem to be blurring the lines between genres just to rave about her!

“[The Seary Line] is a character-driven tale and Lundrigan’s gift is to create memorable ones.”                               – The Globe and Mail

“Richly rendered through a crafted style that is never affected or merely ornamental … something extra permeates this novel.”                                                                 – Atlantic Books Today          

“The novel’s greatest strength, and the reason to read it, is to experience the lives of such intricately wrought characters.”                                                                                     – Newfoundland Quarterly              

(Breakwater would also like to congratulate local author Kate Story for making the longlist as well!)
