In light of recent regulations surrounding COVID-19, please consult the websites and social media channels of individual organizers of any events listed on our calendar for updates and/or cancellations.

Welcome to the QWF Calendar! This calendar–powered by the community!–aims to be an inclusive listing of English-language literary events across Quebec, enabling you to see at a glance what’s happening near you in a given month. Changing to the “List” view provides a more colourful representation of what’s coming up. From book launches to open mics, literary festivals to poetry slams, reading series to workshops. . . we’re delighted to support, connect, and promote writers and literary communities across Quebec.

We list English language, bilingual, and multilingual events. If you are looking for French-language poetry events across Quebec, we suggest that you check the calendar of La poésie partout.

Event organizers and promoters! If you have an event that you would like to see added to the Calendar, please use our Submission Form.
