February Writing Events

It’s time to shake up the month of February with some exciting writing events in the Toronto area!

Phoenix Poetry Workshop

For all of you poets out there, the Toronto Public Library is offering a series of Phoenix Poetry workshops at the College/Shaw branch. There will be ample opportunity for you to share your work with other aspiring wordsmiths and receive helpful constructive criticism on your poems. This will be a great opportunity for you to edit and improve your poetry!

The workshops will take place on February 1, March 1, April 5 and May 3 from 2:30-4 pm. For more information, visit the Toronto Library website.

Toronto Star Short Story Contest

The Toronto Star is accepting submission for their annual Short Story Contest. Entrants must be at least 16 years of age, and can submit a story of up to 2500 words in length. The prizes for the contest are pretty great: the Grand Prize Winner receives $5000 and the opportunity to participate in a Humber College correspondence course in Creative Writing.

If any of you talented youth writers are interested, the contest deadline is February 28. The complete contest information can be found on the Toronto Star website.
