In light of ever-evolving constraints due to COVID-19, QWF has implemented special submission processes for the QWF Awards this year. They are as follows:

The June 1 deadline is still in effect for submission forms and payments.

  • Forms for all submissions, regardless of publication or production date, must be mailed to QWF or emailed to Lori Schubert by June 1.
  • Payments for all submissions, regardless of publication or production date, must be sent by June 1 either by mailing in a cheque or via PayPal at this link: https://www.paypal.com/paypalme2/quebecwriters
  • All books may be submitted as PDFs this year.

The first deadline for sending physical books is under review. 

We are adopting a wait-and-see policy regarding the shipping of physical books. June 1 is the current deadline for books published or plays produced by May 15, as stated in the individual calls for submissions. Please check back here in early May to see whether we have extended that deadline. If we do, any books sent as PDFs will also be subject to the extended deadline.

The deadlines for sending bound galleys and physical books published between May 16 and September 30, 2020 remain as stated in the calls for submissions.


Due to office closures, we are not currently able to receive physical copies of books or documents mailed to our office.

For all submissions, please send us the appropriate form (found on our website) and payment electronically, by the corresponding deadlines. 

To send in a book with your submission, we encourage you to send in an eBook for consideration. Please do not send physical copies until further notice.

All electronic submissions can be sent to Lori Schubert.
