About this event

Competition entries are invited on the following themes:

• Ghosts and Fairies: supernatural tales inspired by Rabbie Burns.

• Legends of the Wall: writing with the Antonine Wall as the setting.

• As I was Walking: creative pieces based on a walk in the style of Robert Louis Stevenson, Tom Weir or Paul Murton

• "And I am coming from the library, my arms full of books." Inspired by Liz Lochhead or Jackie Kay on the changing role of Scottish women

• Clean Water and the Train to Work: creative fiction on memories of Milngavie's past.

• Arrivals and Departures: written pieces on exiles and incomers, from those who were forced to leave their homeland

Submission date for entries is 30th June and winners will be announced at the festival. Prizes are £20.00 plus a signed copy of Sally Magnusson's book.

Writing workshops will run throughout the day presented by experienced local authors. There will be time for networking with fellow writers.
