Scottish Book Trust New Writers Awards 2016

I can't recommend these awards enough.

If you live and work in Scotland, the Scottish Book Trust New Writers Awards are a fantastic and unique opportunity for individuals committed to developing their writing. And you will join an instant network of writers of all disciplines, not just poetry; and throughout the different award years.

The goodies are as follows:

  • £2000 cash award
  • tailored professional development package
  • training in PR
  • performance and presentation training
  • opportunity to showcase work to publishers and agents
  • week-long retreat at Cove Park. 
And the Scottish Book Trust team you will work with are expert, friendly, supportive and have great biscuits!

Writers over the age of 18 can apply for one category, provided they meet the eligibility criteria. (You need to read these!) There is no upper age limit to apply.

Deadline is 5th August 2015. More details available here
