This 2021/2022 academic year, SPACE is excited to be hosting its fourth annual writing competition Students from every discipline across Dawson College are invited to submit writing that encourages reflection on this year’s SPACE theme: intersections.
Students can submit in one or more of three categories: prose (fiction or creative non-fiction), poetry, and essay. Submissions may emerge from classroom work as well as independent initiatives and may be individual or collaborative.
Contest winners and honorable mentions will be selected by an interdisciplinary jury of faculty. In addition to prizes awarded in each category, there will also be an opportunity for publication on the SPACE website.
To better understand some of the various dimensions of intersections, we highly encourage participants to read and consider the description of this year’s theme, as well as to check out the thoughtful reflections on the theme by some of the Dawson Illustration students who participated in the intersections theme poster contest, including the eventual winner, 2nd year Illustration student Evy Voyatzis.
