The winners of the 2015 ReLit Awards were recently announced. The awards, founded in 2000, are handed out annually to three book-length works in the categories of poetry, novels, and short stories that have been published by an independent Canadian publisher.

We'd like to congratulate our two members and their authors that received awards this year:

In House: Oolichan Books

Fernie, British Columbia-based Oolichan Books takes its name and logo from the small, oolichan fish that was once plentiful in West Coast waters. A staple in the diet of First Nations peoples of the area, the oolichan (also known as the candlefish) is believed to possess healing powers and guarantee longevity. A fitting name for a press that publishes books with serious heart, and has been doing so for over forty years!

In House: Quattro Books

Founded in 2006, Toronto’s Quattro Books publishes works outstanding literary merit from both new and established authors. Since then, they’ve published around 50 books in the categories of fiction and poetry, and under their Fourfront imprint, non-fiction, children’s, art, photography, and reference titles.
