Monique Polak




Monique Polak will discuss the many steps that go into writing a 
YA novel — from generating ideas and doing research to getting a manuscript ready for publication. In addition to reading excerpts from her work, Monique will share loads of practical tips. She will also do a short writing exercise designed to help participants find the stories they most need to tell.  

Monique Polak is the author of 17 novels for young adults. She is a two-time winner of the Quebec Writers’ Federation Prize for Children’s and YA Literature. She has been teaching English and Humanities at Marianopolis College in Montreal for more than 30 years and is a frequent contributor to the Montreal Gazette and to Postmedia publications across the country. 

Time: Doors open at 7:00pm and Presentation starts at 7:30

Location: Saanich Centennial Branch, Greater Victoria Public Library
