This 2023/2024 academic year, SPACE is hosting its sixth annual writing competition. Students from every discipline across Dawson College are invited to submit writing that encourages reflection on this year’s SPACE theme: Uncertainty.
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 honourable 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 the theme Uncertainty, 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 creating proposals for this year’s theme poster.
Deadline to apply:
The deadline to apply to the contest is Sunday, December 17, 2023.
All participants will be informed of the results of the contest by Tuesday, February 6, 2024.
