Do you want to share your stories about Toronto?
Join #DearToronto, INKspire’s new project designed to highlight the stories of youth (ages 14-29) across Toronto.
The project aims to encourage young writers and artists to showcase their talents, stories and ideas through submitting their original work (writing or art). Selected pieces will be published online and receive a $25 Amazon gift card as a reward!
Whether you have a poem about visiting the CN Tower with your family, a painting of Toronto’s skyline, or an article exploring the city’s forgotten watershed, we want you to get personal and creative!
Some ground rules:
- The work must relate to the city of Toronto.
- 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: May 30th, 2021 11:59 PM ET
INKspire accepts a variety of content submissions. Below are some types of submissions and their general writing and formatting guidelines.
- Articles (short and long piece, feature, opinion, analysis, reviews, etc.)
- Creative Writing (poems, short stories, personal essays, monologues, etc.)
- Artworks (comics and caricatures, photography, graphic illustrations, and scanned reproduction of hand-produced art)
