Young writer development: What's Your Story

7bfe567b-3722-44b7-9333-36fdc602c634

 

Scottish Book Trust is looking to develop the skills of seven writers or illustrators between the ages of 14 and 17

The skills the seven selected teenagers may be wanting to develop might include prose, poetry, storytelling, illustration, graphic novel writing, song-writing, writing for TV and film, songwriting, blogging and journalism.

The seven What's Your Story ambassadors will be given opportunities to develop their skills in their chosen creative format. These include a residency at the National Library of Scotland, mentoring, a creative retreat, programming the teens creative writing conference StoryCon and taking part in a feature showcase event. Travel expenses will be covered for all participants.

The closing date to apply is 16 October.
