Creative Contest

The theme of the Queen’s Reads Creative Contest is “Identity and Resilience”. We invite students across campus to adapt, interpret, and explore this theme through writing, media and art.

Three submissions will be chosen and receive $100 gift certificates for the Queen’s Bookstore.  Winning entries will be featured on the Queen’s Reads Blog and the winners will have a chance to meet the author, Katherena Vermette. 

The deadline for submission is February 19th. The winning submissions will be announced March 1st on the Queen’s Reads blog page with prizes being handed out at the Author Visit on March 7th.

Entries must be previously unpublished and original. One entry per person. If submitting a non-written work, please include a short reflection presenting your submission and describing how it relates to the theme. The word limit for creative writing submissions and reflections accompanying other media and art works is 500 words.

Along with your submission please include your contact information, the title of your entry, and your year and program. Submissions can be emailed to
