Could you be Young Scots Writer of the Year 2020? Enter our fantastic competition for young people aged 11-18 to write a poem, a story, a play or a song in the Scots language.
The winner will be invited to receive their prize at the fantastic Scots Language Awards ceremony on Friday 11 September 2020 at The Caird Hall in Dundee, and be given the title of Young Scots Writer of the Year 2020.
We’ll post some fantastic books to the shortlist.
The theme for this year’s competition is Till a’ the seas gang dry.
This is a line from Robert Burns’ famous Scots poem A red, red rose.
Perhaps Robert Burns’ words will inspire you to write about the Climate Emergency. Or about Scotland and the sea in the Year of Scotland’s Coasts and Waters. Or about love. Or about anything you want. It’s up to you.
The deadline for submitting your Scots writing is Wednesday 24 of June 2020.
The winners will be announced on Friday 21 of August 2020.
WHIT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Write a poem, story, play or song in under 200 words, a one page comic or a video of you telling a story in three minutes or less. Just one entry per person.
