Each month we’ll provide a prompt to get you started, but where the story goes from there is entirely up to you. This month we're celebrating Book Week Scotland(this will open in a new window) (18-24 November) with a conversation-themed prompt.
The competition includes four categories: adult writers, all-age Gaelic writers, young writers 5-11 and young writers 12-18. The entries will be judged by a panel and the four winning stories will be published on our website roughly two weeks after the closing date.
A prize will be awarded to a writer in each category:
- Adult writers: A 'go away I'm writing' mug from The Literary Gift Company(this will open in a new window)
- All-age Gaelic writers: Excellent books from The Gaelic Books Council.(this will open in a new window)
- Young writers 5-11: A fun selection of books.
- Young writers 12-18: A Moleskine notebook for future stories.
Whether you're a seasoned writer or you've always fancied picking up a pen, why not give it a go? You can read last month's winning entries(this will open in a new window) for inspiration.
