Readings and School Visits

The Writers' Union of Canada offers funding to hosts for authors to read in public venues across Canada through the National Public Readings Program and in Ontario-based schools through the Writers-in-the-Schools program.

To be eligible for funding, authors must be members of The Writers' Union of Canada. To verify if an author is a member of the Union, please see our Members' Pages.

All applications for readings and school visits must reach our offices a minimum of four weeks in advance of the event. Before you apply, please consult our information pages on hosting effective readings and school visits, and check out the FAQs section.
