Literary Contest 2024: Something Lost, Something Found

Each summer, Mensa Canada holds an annual literary contest for poetry and short stories.

The theme for 2024 is “something lost, something found.”

You could write about relationships, jobs, clouds with silver linings, or even something you actually lost and found again. The sky is the limit for your imagination! Play with this idea and make a short story or poetry, and maybe win a prize!

Submissions must be received by June 2, 2024. Winners will be announced at the Annual General Meeting during the Annual Gathering in Grimsby on June 23, 2024.
