Types of Presentations

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current public health situation, it is possible that some Writers in CEGEPs classroom visits will take place virtually.

Prospective and approved writers must be able to adapt their visits accordingly.

Teachers responsible for organizing a visit may contact a writer directly to discuss the type of activity he or she will lead and to set a date. [Contact information is available from UNEQ or QWF.] Prior to the visit, the individual responsible for hosting the activity at the CEGEP and the featured author jointly plan the program. Three types of visits are possible:

  • lecture/reading
  • writing workshop
  • seminar

The duration of meetings should never exceed a class period. For longer-term activities, please contact Geneviève Lauzon (g.lauzon@uneq.qc.ca) to find out if you can submit multiple requests.

The hosting CEGEP decides the size of the group(s) attending the author’s activity. They may wish to have the writer visit more than one class to maximize the benefit of the program.

Planning related activities for before and after the visit helps to make the most of the writer’s presence at the school. For instance, a book display of the author’s work might be organized to stimulate participation. Student radio broadcasts and the student newspapers are encouraged to announce and promote the visit of the guest. Before visits, UNEQ will send the biography and bibliography of a writer upon request, as well as photographs when available.


We would also like to express our gratitude to the following sponsors, without whom the Writers in CEGEPs program would not be possible.
