Administrative history

Greenboathouse Books, founded by Jason Dewinetz, was a small digital press producing chapbooks and an online poetry archive. With the mandate to feature and make accessible new and powerful writers, the company also ran a summer reading series. Dewinetz started the publishing venture in 1999 out of a boathouse built by his great-grandfather on the shore of Okanagan Lake near Vernon, B.C. With a shift towards letterpress production in 2008, Greenboathouse Books became Greenboathouse Press.

Custodial history

Records were in the custody of Jason Dewinetz prior to their acquisition by Simon Fraser University Library Special Collections and Rare Books.
