The Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild online 50/50 raffle is a lottery draw in which 50% of the revenues go to one lucky winner and 50% goes to the SWG to target our youth programming. This 50/50 raffle will benefit the SWG Youth Programming and the Saskatchewan Youth Poet Laureate. The draw will be made at noon on May 16, 2022.


The Youth Poet Laureate is a young poet who celebrates the people and place of Saskatchewan, raises awareness of poetry and engages communities through the literary arts. The YPL is a poet between the ages of 18-25 who has energy, creativity and a demonstrated commitment to written poetry and/or spoken word. The Youth Poet Laureate shares their work publicly with diverse audiences and takes the initiative in organizing and/or creating a special poetry project that celebrates poetry in Saskatchewan. 


Please note: SWG staff and Board are ineligible to win; however, as the SWG has no influence over the draw and the winner is chosen independently through Trellis, families of SWG board and staff are eligible.
