Welcome to our site!


I'm Heidi Stock, Founder of Aspiring Canadian Writers Contests, sponsor of The 2015 Screenwriter Mentor Experience.


Aspiring Canadian Writers Contests (ACWC) recognizes and develops unpublished Canadian writers by providing mentoring opportunities with acclaimed, published writers. 
ACWC launched in April 2012 with the Aspiring Canadian Poets Contestsupported by Vancouver Poet Laureate, Evelyn Lau.
The poetry contest has run on an annual basis since 2012, followed by a one-time contest for unsigned singer-songwriters in 2014, supported by Songwriters Association of Canada.
Now, in 2015, we are thrilled to announce our contest for aspiring short film screenwriters, The 2015 Screenwriter Mentor Experience! We are proud to be a Supporting Sponsor of the Toronto Screenwriting Conference, April 11 to 12.
