Trade Sales

Broadview produces literary Trade titles under the Freehand Books imprint.

We also distribute for Pyxis Press

Please note: Effective June 1, 2011, LitDistCo will be the exclusive Canadian distributor for Freehand Books. Distribution for Freehand Books was previously handled by Broadview Press, which will continue to accept returns until December 31. LitDistCo will begin processing returns immediately. Sales representation for Freehand titles will continue to be handled by Ampersand Inc. (formerly known as Kate Walker & Company). Broadview Press will continue to handle distribution of its own trade titles.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Freehand's Managing Editor Kelsey Attard at 403-452-5662 403-452-5662 or via email at kattard[at]
