Our Daisy Chain Contest is almost over!

A daisy chain, also known as a “round robin,” is a type of collaborative writing where each contributor writes one part before passing it onto the next person to continue the piece. To connect the McMaster community outside of synchronous events, we’re creating some collaborative stories and poems of our own. And for every teensy, tiny entry that you add to the larger chain by February 21 at 11:59PM EST, you’ll be entered to win one of two $20 Skip the Dishes or Starbucks giftcards!

The more “daisies” you add for other students to enjoy, the more chances you have at winning! Plus, you’ll be participating in a cool collaborative project and digitally sharing your creativity with your peers. Copy-edited versions of these pieces will also be shared across our socials and in a future issue with the names of everyone that contributed.


Check out the starting prompts at & get writing!

About Incite

Est. 1997, Incite Magazine is McMaster University’s independent arts and culture publication featuring personal essays, fiction, poetry, commentary, research, interviews, sketches, photography, paintings, digital art, and more. We aim to foster the growth of a creative community promoting self-expression, collaboration, and dialogue within our university campus and city of Hamilton. Every aspect of Incite’s writing, graphics, layout, video, and event production is carried out by our wonderful student volunteers.

We would like to recognize that the main McMaster University campus sits on the traditional territory shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and the Anishinabe nations, which was acknowledged in the Dish with One Spoon wampum belt. That wampum uses the symbolism of a dish to represent the territory, and one spoon to represent that the people are to share the resources of the land and only take what they need. Though the student body is scattered all over right now, it feels important to still reflect critically on what “here” means in the context of the campus we may be referring back to.

Rather than simply making this acknowledgement as a tokenized gesture, we would also like to reaffirm our publication's commitment to better serving the Indigenous peoples and the land through the creative works that we showcase in our publication, the voices that we strive to amplify, and the spaces and initiatives that we create.
