The High School Writing Competition has been replaced by an exciting new contest: The Canada 150 Creative Writing Competition.

This contest welcomes previously unpublished fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry submissions by high school students in grades 9 – 12. Up to 20 successful entries will be published in a dedicated anthology chapbook published by In/Words Magazine and Press. All students will have a chance to win one of three e-readers, passes to the Ottawa International Writers Festival, passes for summer music festivals in Ottawa and for Ottawa Valley fairs.

The deadline to submit your piece is April 1, 2017.
