QWF Literary Awards Gala
14 November, 2022 at 06:30 – 22:00 EST
The Quebec Writers’ Federation invites you to the annual celebration of the finalists and winners of the QWF Awards, the carte blanche Prize, the College Writers Award, and the Judy Mappin Community Award.
This year marks a new addition to the Gala awards roster. The QWF Spoken Word Prize will be awarded to up to three Quebec-based spoken word, storytelling, or literary performance artists working primarily in English in any form of performative writing, including poetry, story, monologue, hip hop, dub, sound poetry, experimental or interdisciplinary work.
The theme for the event is “Complex Times: When Nothing Is Black and White.” Attendees are invited to get in the spirit of the theme by dressing up in anything but black and white. Wear your brightest, most vibrant array of colours, or dress in your many shades of grey. Those who participate will have their names entered into a draw for a special prize.
The ceremony begins at 8:00 p.m., preceded by a cocktail reception from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Doors to the ceremony open at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets to the reception are $50 ($40 for full-time students) and include two glasses of wine, beer, or non-alcoholic drink and admission to the awards ceremony.
Tickets for the ceremony alone are $25 ($10 for full-time students).
