August Writing Prompts

Helping those in need and standing up for what you believe in are essential aspects of student life. In Ontario, and other provinces and territories across Canada, volunteering is mandatory for high school students. Not only does volunteering help you gain skills necessary for your professional journey, it also helps you see how valuable and needed your contributions are in your community. For August’s daily writing prompts, we urge you to reflect on how lending a helping hand and supporting those who give their time and effort for a good cause can greatly impact the world for the better.

July Writing Prompts

For July’s daily writing prompts, we encourage you to make an action plan for the summer so you can make the most out of your time away from school. There are many fun events and festivals you can attend in your own city, and there are many unexplored places you can visit and enjoy.

June Writing Prompts

Being a good friend, staying in touch with classmates outside of school, and actively participating in clubs and extracurricular activities are some of the many responsibilities of a well-rounded student. With the summer season just around the corner, we encourage you to reflect on the importance of maintaining a healthy social life.

May Writing Prompts

For the month of May, let’s celebrate Canada’s diversity by exploring the colorful customs and traditions of other cultures. May’s warmer days should also give you plenty of opportunities to visit and support your local museum, where you will find a wealth of information about the people who helped shape Canada’s culture.

April Writing Prompts

The spring season is a time for self-reflection and spiritual renewal, so for April’s writing prompts, we encourage to reflect on your physical and mental health, as well as the health of those around you and our beautiful planet.

Write Amazing Short Stories with Kurt Vonnegut

American novelist, Kurt Vonnegut Jr. (November 11, 1922 – April 11, 2007), was a warm and witty tour guide of alternate universes. Part science-fiction, satire, and comedy, his stories encourage readers to laugh at the meaninglessness of an earthling’s life, while urging them to use this very pessimism to supplement and nurture a kinder and gentler heart.
