Words Writing Project 2020-21

Hot off the press, the 2020-21 Words anthology, Words in Action, is in the hands of 100 published student authors and their families. You will also find it in libraries in the City of Burnaby and schools, and you can read it here.

Unique to Burnaby Schools, the Words Writing Project is a literacy tradition that began in 1985. It celebrates the best in student writing and provides career exploration by inviting students district-wide, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, to submit an original story or poem for a chance to get published.

You’ll find the most recent published anthologies below. Please sit back, and enjoy the words of our young authors.
