Writers in Schools
The Culture in the Schools program gives students and teachers the opportunity to meet a professional writer in the classroom to exchange ideas about writing, language and literature, or various aspects of the writing profession. They may also participate in writing workshops.
The program is intended for students of Quebec public and private educational institutions in the French-language and English-language sectors, at the pre-school, primary and secondary levels. For a complete repertoire of writers eligible to participate in the program, see the program web site.
Any questions about the Writers in Schools program should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
