Literature

Close
Ontario Arts Council (OAC) Literature programs encourage the development, publication and presentation of new works of literary significance in the province. Literature programs fund writers, storytellers and spoken-word artists in all forms (except drama, which is funded under Theatre Programs).

Publishing programs support book publishers that develop, print, promote and distribute new literary work; the programs also support arts and literary magazines that showcase Canadian writers and provide critical commentary on arts and culture. Literature programs also fund festivals and reading series that present the work of Ontario’s literary writers and publishers.
