Are you someone with stories to share? Or a teacher working with young writers we should know about? We're looking for our next Scots writer of the year.
Stories, poems, spoken word pieces, comics, videos or other pieces of writing – we want to see it all, as long as it's in Scots and under 2500 words or up to ten minutes.
We are delighted to announce the Young Scots Writer o the Year 2023 winner and share the winning story!
Our winner will receive their award and a £100 book token at a special ceremony (The Scots Language Awards) in September 2023. They'll have the chance to receive their prize on stage and either read their work or have it read for them – but only if they want to!
