INCITE is an anthology of student writing and visual art published annually by CITE. The host conference school sends out a contest call inviting CIS Ontario schools to submit their three best student pieces across age-bands and writing forms each fall. All students published in the anthology receive a copy. Cash prizes are awarded for the best writing. Contest winners are announced at the annual CITE Conference and are often asked to present their work.
Speculative fiction is most often dystopian in nature. Our current world sometimes seems to lend itself to this dark prophecy. Why not look at the world through a rose-coloured, but responsible, lens?
The 2023 INCITE prompt asked students to write a short story, poem, essay, or dramatic scene that explores the idea of "joyous speculation." Writers could choose to focus on something real or imagined, focusing on positive aspects, outcomes, and mindsets.
