Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) Residency

Denis Thériault is an award-winning author and screenwriter who lives in Montreal, Canada.

His first novel, L‘lguane, was published in 2001 and won that year's Prix Anne-Hébert and Prix Quebec-France/Jean-Hamelin. It was also the winning title in the 2007 edition of the competition, Le Combat des livres, organized by Canadas’s public broadcaster the CBC. Denis’ second novel, Le Facteur émotif, was published in 2005 and a much-anticipated sequel, The Postman's Fiancée, was published in 2017.

Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ)

In 2008-2009, in partnership with Québec's Ministry of Culture and Communications and the Ministry of International Relations and the Francophonie, and on the recommendation of Arts Council England, Conseil des arts et des lettres (CALQ) approached Acme to establish the Québec Studio in London, thereby expanding the network of residencies offered abroad to Québec artists and writers. The residency provides two six month long residencies per year in Bow, E3 for artists who have at least 10 years' experience of professional practice. Applications and selection are undertaken directly by CALQ.
