Fanshawe College and the School of Language and Liberal Studies host two writing contests that will challenge your creativity, test the might of your pen and earn you money! If you can write, you can win. It’s that easy.

(Psst! It's OK to use a writing project from one of your past courses or submit completely original content - the choice is yours.)
