The Quebec Writers’ Federation (QWF) is a not-for-profit registered charitable organization representing and serving the English-language literary community in the province of Quebec, Canada.

Founded in 1998 from two predecessor organizations, the Quebec Society for the Promotion of English-Language Literature (QSPELL) and the Federation of English-language Writers of Quebec (FEWQ), QWF is a literary arts presenter, provides professional development to established and emerging writers, runs community literary education programs, administers the Quebec Writers’ Federation Awards annually, and publishes the not-for-profit literary journal carte blanche.

The QWF also curates the QWF Literary Database of Quebec English-language authors, a searchable online compendium that represents the physical QWF collection of 1,532 books by Quebec English-language authors, housed at the Atwater Library and Computer Centre.

In 2013, the QWF celebrated its fifteenth anniversary, with a gala at the Virgin Mobile Corona Theatre.[1]

The QWF is based in Westmount (Montreal), Canada.
