Writers Read Concordia is supported by the Department of English, the Creative Writing Program, and the Faculty of Arts & Science. The tradition of literary readings at Concordia predates the existence of the university itself, as such events were held well before Sir George Williams and Loyola merged in 1974. The series, now known as Writers Read Concordia, invites renowned and emerging authors, both Canadian and international, to read from and discuss their work with students and local audiences. In addition to readings, the series includes Master Classes and professional development activities, some open to the public and others only for Concordia students.

Collaborations with Concordia’s School of Canadian Irish Studies, the Atwater Poetry Project, Bishop’s University, the Université de Montreal’s Department of English, Librarie Drawn & Quarterly and other organizations make the series possible. The Writers Read Series also receives funding assistance from the Faculty of Arts and Science.

The Current Director of Writers Read is Sina Queyras. You can contact her at sina.queyras@concordia.ca

The current assistant is Hannah Greene, you can contact us at writersreadconcordia@gmail.com
