In the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017, we celebrate the richness of Scotland’s intriguing history, impressive cultural heritage and fascinating archaeology at exciting experiences and events.
To celebrate, Education Scotland have launched a Creative Writing competition at the Scottish Learning Festival on 20 September. Learners of any and all ages are invited to enter to win Scots Language books for their school. Learners should write a poem or short story of not more than 750 words in length. The story or poem must be written in Scots language – though can be in any dialect of Scots, as broad or unique as the writer would like.
