Deadline: Wednesday, June 12, 2019.

If you are an established writer, literary performer or worker in the book industry with professional credentials, QWF invites you to submit a proposal to lead a workshop in 2020. 

QWF workshops offer a wide range of subjects and we welcome new ideas. Recent subjects have included short story, screenwriting, memoir, poetry, travel writing, spoken word, storytelling and more; there have also been workshops on getting published, doing historical research, freelancing, making the transition to corporate writing, etc.  Most sessions are open to all; occasionally we offer an introductory creative writing workshop or a master class requiring potential participants to submit writing samples. Most workshops take place in the QWF office, although sessions are also occasionally given outside Montreal.

Typical workshop formats include 1-day Saturday workshops, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and 8-week evening workshops, either 6:00 to 8:00 pm or 8:00 to 10:00 pm. Proposals for other formats, such as 10-week advanced workshops or 3-hour workshops, are also welcome.
