Development Director, Fiction

    After completing her Ph.D. studies in philosophy, Caroline Allard turned her hand to writing fiction. In 2007, she published a collection of works entitled Les chroniques d'une mère indigne. On the strength of its critical and popular success, the collection was adapted as a web series by Radio-Canada. The author’s next ventures took her into the world of illustrated books (Pour en finir avec le sexe, La reine Et-Que-Ça-Saute), novels (Universel Coiffure) and comic books (Les chroniques d’une fille indigne). She also hosted a monthly feature on the literary program “Plus on est de fous, plus on lit.” In recent years, Caroline has focused on screenwriting (with L’œil du cyclone, Entre deux draps, Discussions avec mes parents and Le Pacte), script editing (for such programs as Conseils de famille and Bye Bye 2020) and teaching (with a class on writing for television at the École nationale de l'humour). Since September 2022, she has held the position of Development Director, Fiction at Avanti-Toast.
