Out-of-Towners

Out-of-town vendors wishing to attend in person We welcome folks from outside Montreal who would like to sell their stuff at the QBTC bookfair! Past bookfairs have featured vendors from Ottawa, Toronto, Philadelphia, New York, and New Orleans, among other places!  We have a limited budget but every year we try to offer modest travel subsidies on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to attend the bookfair but the cost to get to Montreal is a prohibitive factor for you, let us know and we will see what we can do.

Billeting for visiting vendors If you are in need of a place to stay while you’re in town, please indicate this on your registration form and we will do our very best to find you somewhere to stay that meets your needs.

Out-of-town vendors wishing to send us their materials If you would like to sell your materials at the bookfair but cannot do so in person, we can arrange to sell them on your behalf. Let us know on your registration form that you would like to mail us your stock and we will provide you with an address where it can be sent. It is very important to allow at least two weeks (if not more) for your materials to arrive, particularly if you are sending us things from outside of Canada. If you are sending material from Ottawa or Toronto, it’s also very possible that we can arrange to transport it via individuals who will be traveling from these locations to table at the bookfair. We will also put you in touch directly with a member of our collective who will be responsible for your sales. Please make sure to provide a clear inventory and price list. Wherever possible, please list prices in Canadian dollars and include any taxes you are charging. We will keep careful track of all sales and then arrange to mail back any unsold material, along with a cheque for your total sales. We have a limited budget, so if you can afford postage, that’s great for us. We will, however, be offering some postage subsidies on a first-come, first-served basis, so let us know if this is something you need.

Out-of-town folks wishing to visit the bookfair If you are visiting from out of town and want to attend the bookfair, we strongly encourage you to check out the whole Pervers/cité schedule because it’s going to be awesome! It’s very possible that festival organizers can arrange billeting for you. Let us know if this is something you need and we can also do our best to figure something out.
