Would you like to tell your stories about Canada?

Come be a part of #DearCanada, INKspire’s latest initiative aimed at showcasing the stories of young individuals (aged 14-29) throughout Canada.

We urge writers to pen down their thoughts on anything that strikes a chord with their experience in Canada. Whether it’s a memory of a place in Canada with their loved ones, their sentiments about living in Canada, or what they adore about Canada, we want them to express themselves in a personal and imaginative manner!

Our publishing team will choose the top twenty (20) works which will be published on our website and rewarded with a $25 Amazon gift card


Some ground rules:

  • The work must relate to Canada.
  • The work must be original and cannot be previously published somewhere else.
  • You have to be between the ages of 14-29 to submit.
  • Keep the subject matter appropriate — this means no sexual content, profanity, and gratuitous violence.
  • Submission deadline: June 16th, 2023 11:59 PM ET
