Toronto Lit Up

Meet local authors and join them in celebrating the launch of new books! The Toronto International Festival of Authors has partnered with the Toronto Arts Council (TAC) on Toronto Lit Up: a 3-year initiative designed to spotlight local writers and empower them with career-building opportunities.

Toronto Lit Up book launches are open to the public and free to attend. They take place throughout the year at Harbourfront Centre and other venues across the city.

Meet the Selection Committee:

Dionne Brand (University of Guelph and Chair of the committee), Alison Jones (Quill and Quire), Hazel Millar (Literary Press Group), Christine Saratsiotis (TIFA), and Geoffrey Taylor (TIFA) will adjudicate all selections.

To submit your work for consideration, please visit our Submissions page.
