HeForShe Writing Contest

As part of the commitment to the UN Women’s HeForShe IMPACT 10x10x10 initiative, the University of Waterloo presents the HeForShe writing contest to take place each fall.

Through poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction, we welcome our community's reflections on the challenges they have faced, but also their hopes, dreams, and directions for the future.

Prizes are awarded for the top submission in each category (poetry, creative non-fiction, and fiction). Selected submissions will also be included in a special University of Waterloo anthology on gender equity that is published on International Women’s Day.

Learn more about the contest and view the submission guidelines.
