The Joshua Weinzweig Creative Writing Program

Thanks to the vision and generous support of Daniel Weinzweig, young creative writers at Pickering College have produced a history of successful work. Recently, dozens of writers from the Senior School captured first place in a Canada-wide literary competition and many individuals have published their work in newspapers, magazines and anthologies or won short story, poetry or essay writing contests.

The nationally-recognized Joshua Weinzweig Creative Writing Program provides young writers with systemic opportunity to develop their craft, resource and program support, and effective mentoring and recognition for their efforts.

Each year, student work is published in the PC Review of Writing.
