Events - Writing Contest - Creative Works Writing Contest 2020

The South Simcoe Arts Council has been shining a spotlight on up and coming writers of all ages, in all genres through its Creative Works Writing Contest for five years.

We are so proud to announce the winners of the 2020 Creative Works Writing Contest! Creative Works is a blind contest, which means that the adjudicators did not know who wrote the submissions. Each entry received written feedback from the adjudicator.

Thank you to our sponsors who made this contest possible:
Town of New Tecumseth
Gary and Dian Bowers
John and Nancy Williams
Isolde Ryan
