Words Writing Project 2020-21: Accepting Summer Writing

Why not get started now? The Words Writing Project provides all K-12 students a chance to become one of 100 published authors whose work is printed in an anthology and distributed to all school and city libraries.

This annual tradition supports our district-wide objective of promoting literacy and providing career exploration opportunities. This is also a wonderful way to showcase and celebrate student achievement in creative writing.

Poetry pieces and prose (not exceeding 500 words) are accepted from all students in the District, and selected entries are published in our limited edition anthology in May of each year. If you love to write, why not make a submission for the 2020-21 Words Anthology. Entries for our next anthology will be accepted until February 5, 2021.

Check out the Burnaby Now for the sponsored full page congratulating the more than 100 student authors published in May 2020. Thank you Burnaby Now and Royal Printers for your ongoing support of the Words Writing Project.

Please sit back, and enjoy the words of our young authors in our more recent anthologies:
