Ontario Writers-in-the-Schools Virtual Presentations

With the assistance of the Ontario Arts Council, The Writers’ Union of Canada funds author visits to Ontario elementary and secondary schools. If you are applying for more than one virtual school presentation, please submit separate applications for each presentation. Please note that we anticipate that applications will exceed available funding and that we won't be able to fund all applications.

Please ensure you have read the Ontario Writers-in-the-Schools program information before applying. For more information, contact the TWUC office at info@writersunion.ca.
