Webinars & Activities

The FOLD provides opportunities for readers and writers to discover great books and improve their writing year-round from anywhere in the world.

The Reading Challenge audible-small


What are you reading? Who’s missing? The FOLD’s Reading Challenge encourages booklovers to diversify their reading and their listening by asking one important question: Who’s missing?

Each year, the FOLD releases a twelve-challenge list in January, focusing on one challenge per month for the duration of the year. Each month, the FOLD releases a blog compiled by one of our planning team members that includes a list of recommended titles to help you along.

The 2020 Challenge is sponsored by Audible Canada.

FOLD Academy began as a way to support underrepresented storytellers who face barriers developing their craft.

The free monthly webinars feature established and award-winning writers as well as industry professionals who share their own tips and tricks with writers wherever they happen to be in the world. A webinar series for kids was added in 2020 to help kids at home connect with great Canadian authors.

The first three webinars of the 2020/2021 season feature acclaimed Canadian authors and publishing professionals. All webinars take place at 12pm EST on the second Saturday of the month:

OCTOBER 12: Poetry as Disobedience: Writing Your Way Through Pandemonium with Olive Senior

NOVEMBER 14: To Agent Or Not To Agent with Aeman Ansari

DECEMBER 12: Show Don’t Tell with Shyam Selvadurai

The 2020/2021 season of FOLD Academy is sponsored by Humber School for Writers, Harlequin, and HarperCollins Canada.
