Windscript has been publishing the best of Saskatchewan high school students' literature since 1983. Windscript was created by Victor Jerrett Enns, Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild from 1982 to 1988. His enthusiasm and determination kept the magazine alive in its first two years until permanent funding could be found. For twenty-one years the magazine was distributed free to all high schools and libraries in the province. By 2004 funding sources were no longer available and the print publishing of the magazine was replaced by electronic versions through the Guild’s website. In 2011, due to popular demand from students and teachers, as well as offering it online, the Guild managed to publish this magazine for promising young writers in print form once again.
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.
