Event description

Description

Hosted by Ian Rankin with music by Emma Pollock

The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival’s Writing Awards, in partnership with Bipolar Scotland, is one of SMHAF’s most enduring successes. An opportunity for first time writers to be published alongside established names, the ceremony is often where we discover what our festival is really about, as writers from across Scotland and further afield take inspiration from this year’s theme in poignant, powerful, personal and often ingenious and surprising ways.

This year the evening is hosted by best-selling author Ian Rankin and will open with a short set by one of Scotland’s top singer-songwriters, Emma Pollock. Our ten shortlisted writers will read from their work, before the awards presentation and a drinks reception.

The SMHAF Writing Awards will also see the launch of 70 Stories, a year-long project to mark the 70th anniversary of the Mental Health Foundation. 70 Stories will connect pieces from our writing competition, stories from the first 13 years of SMHAF, and more to create a compelling portrait of mental health in 2019.
