» Windscript

Windscript is the annual magazine of high school writing published by the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild since 1983. The Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild is proud to support the fresh, original work of student writers. We thank, in advance, the teachers and librarians who encourage their students to submit their creations for the upcoming issue.



Windscript Submission Guidelines

We welcome students to submit creative writing in any and all forms - poetry, prose, and creative nonfiction

Please note that as in all writing competitions, these guidelines are very important and must be followed in order for submissions to be accepted.

1. Always keep a copy of your submitted work. Submissions will not be returned.

2. Submit a maximum of six poems. Do not put more than one poem on a page. Prose works must not exceed 1500 words.

3. All work must be original from start to finish. Writers submitting plagiarized work will be banned from Windscript.

4. Type each creative writing piece in 12 pt font, double spaced.

5. Number each page.

6. Put the title on each submission and each page of the manuscript. Do not put your name on the poems or stories themselves as submissions are selected anonymously.

7. Proofread your manuscript.

8. In a Cover Letter, provide the following information:        

Your name, your home phone number, mailing address, and email

The genre of writing you are submitting (fiction, poetry, nonfiction)

The title(s) of your poems or stories

The name, address, and phone number of your school and teacher

  A fifty-word biography written in the third person (if we publish your work, we will use this information, so be creative)

Windscript Awards

Jerrett Enns Awards

The Jerrett Enns Awards are two awards of excellence for high school student writing in poetry and prose named in honour of Victor Jerrett Enns, Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild from 1982 to 1988. A third award for art was discontinued in 1996. Today, the poetry and prose awards continue to be presented, as well as an Honourable Mention in each category.

 

Currie-Hyland Prize

The Currie-Hyland Prize is awarded for excellence in poetry to a high school writer living outside Regina or Saskatoon. This award was established in 1992 by the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild and the literary community of Moose Jaw as a tribute to Robert Currie and Gary Hyland in recognition of the literary excellence they achieved in their many published works and to acknowledge their commitment and generosity to their students and fellow writers.
