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.
