Windscript is the annual magazine of high school writing published by the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild since 1983. A magazine launch is hosted annually in conjunction with the Cathedral Village Arts Festival in Regina, and copies of the magazine are distributed to schools and libraries across the province.
This is an excellent chance for students to be published for the first time and be paid for their selected submissions. Prizes and awards will also be given to our top entries in three categories.
