Writers & CALQ

18 March at 10:00 13:00 EDT

Limited to 20 participants: 10 in-person and 10 online

In this hybrid workshop, Tawhida Tanya Evanson and David Bradford provide an overview of best practices for writers with projects for print, spoken word, or storytelling looking to write strong literary arts grant applications for the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ). The workshop will focus on grants for professional development, creation, production and travel with emphasis on the project description, budget, support materials, assessment criteria, risk, impact, and cultural appropriation. This workshop will include time for Q&A and is intended for Quebec-based English-language writers at all stages of their practice with priority given to emerging, BIPOC, LGBTQ2+ and disabled artists.

Access to MS Word or similar writing software will be necessary.

Presented in partnership with the Blue Metropolis Festival

This workshop will take place at the QWF Office (Room 3, 1200 Atwater Avenue, Westmount, Quebec) with up to 10 virtual spots for participants who are unable to attend in-person.
