You may want to spend a few minutes thinking about home this weekend.
And more especially write something.
You can enter poetry (but also songs, letters or stories) for Scottish Book Trust's Scotland’s Stories of Home and work in Scots and Gaelic is welcome. You need to live in Scotland. Entries should be no longer than 1000 words and should be written on the theme of ‘what home means to you’. This can include places, buildings, people, communities, a view, music, food, objects, pets etc. Your work is published online at the SBT site and a selection will be collected in an anthology.
But time is short. The deadline for the Scottish Book Trust's Scotland's Story of Home is 5pm on Monday 30th June.
You can find out more about the competition here http://www.scottishbooktrust.com/reading/stories-of-home.
