The Literary Database of Quebec English-Language Authors was launched by the Quebec Writers’ Federation (QWF) in the winter of 2006 as part of the year-long celebration of Montreal as UNESCO’s 2006 World Book Capital. The launch was supported by a generous donation from the Montreal World Book Capital Committee, and support from the Department of Canadian Heritage.

A new, completely redesigned version of the site was launched in November 2023, thanks to a supplemental grant from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the outstanding work of Endoh Collaborative.

You can search the database by author, by title, or by genre. You can also find out which books were shortlisted or selected as winners of annual our QWF Awards for literary excellence.

The Quebec Writers’ Federation gratefully acknowledges the support of The Canada Council for the Arts, The Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, The Conseil des art de Montréal, The Department of Canadian Heritage, and the sponsors of the QWF Awards: John Abbott College, Champlain Regional College, Dawson College, Heritage College, Marianopolis College, Vanier College, Paragraphe Bookstore, Concordia University, the Cole Foundation, John Blachford, Byron Rempel, and Gabriel Safdie.
