About

Writing is a road to discovery. We make and find meaning through writing, language, and symbols, and we use these to communicate what we’ve found: new knowledge, new worlds, new people, ourselves. We write them in letters, words, symbols–in mathematical equations, musical notation, and facial expressions. We write through all the modes of expression available to use, and leave a print on the world for others to discover for themselves. 

Inventio is an online literary magazine that publishes these discoveries. Whether short stories, poetry, non-fiction, or blended-genre compositions, we share what you create. Since its beginnings in 2017 through York University’s Professional Writing Students’ Association, Inventio has been a platform for the literary talent of post-secondary students across Canada.

Join us as we discover writing. For students, by students.
