The Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild (SWG) is delighted to present the digital launch of Vol. 39 of Windscript Magazine, featuring some of the best writing by high school students in Saskatchewan.
The SWG has published Windscript and the fresh, original work of student writers annually since 1983. Join editors Jaclyn Morken and Dash Reimer, and some of the students from this year's Windscript magazine as they read from their recently published work. Awards will be presented for the best writing in each category.
Our editors identified themes in this volume. Dash Reimer says, “One of the core themes of the poetry in this volume of Windscript has been the longing to be embraced and healthily cared for by our communities, our families and our friendships.” Jaclyn Morken adds, “I also found strong nature imagery in many pieces, as well as a recurring focus on fear—fear of the future, the unknown, loss, and, like Dash indicated, loneliness. But I also found courage in the face of this fear.”
We can’t wait for you to enjoy this issue! Stay tuned to our website in the days following the launch. All SWG members will receive an emailed version of this issue. We will post a digital version for you to read here: https://skwriter.com/programs-and-services/publications/windscript
Windscript is available for purchase for $5.00/each plus shipping. (They will be mailed after the launch event.)
