Funding for Author Visits
Financial assistance for author visits is available throughout Canada, thanks to the generous support of our governments working with the literary non-profit community.
- If you are in an Ontario school, you can get financial assistance for an author visit through the Writers in the Schools Program administered by the Writers’ Union of Canada.
- If you’re in a Northern Ontario school, assistance to help fund transportation, accommodation, and multiple school visits may be available through the Writers in the Schools Northern Ontario Program.
- If you’re in Quebec at an elementary or secondary school, look me up on the Répertoire des ressources culture-éducation to get help with funding an author visit through the Culture in Schools program of the Quebec Ministry of Education.
- If you’re at a Quebec CEGEP, apply for funding through the Writers in CEGEPs Program administered by the Quebec Writers’ Federation.
- If you’d like a visit to your library, bookstore, or other non-school venue anywhere in Canada, funding assistance could be available from the Canada Council for the Arts through either the National Public Reading Program administered by the Writers’ Union of Canada, or through the Writers Out Loud program administered by the Quebec Writers’ Federation.
Wherever you may be, if you want me to come join you, feel free to contact me to arrange a visit.
