stories future scottish book trust

As part of Scottish Book Trust’s annual writing project – Your Stories – they’re asking people all over Scotland to submit true stories inspired by their theme for this year: Future.

‘Every day we cast ourselves into the future, imagining what’s next in our lives. We tell ourselves stories about where we’ll go and with who, or reflect on how the past has shaped us. For many of us, the future represents opportunity and gives us hope that we can make positive change for our loved ones, our communities or ourselves. ‘

You may be an activist desperate to bring about a transformation, an eternal optimist setting a target or  a dreamer wondering what the next chapter in your life will brig – Scottish Book Trust wants to hear your story.

The competition is open to everyone including novice writers.  Your story can be in written, audio or video form. It can be a the form of your choice – a story, poem, play, letter, or even a comic strip! Stories written in Scots and Gaelic too would also be welcomed.

Every entry will appear on the Scottish Book Trust website and a selection will be published in a free book for Book Week Scotland, national celebration of books and reading.

How to submit

Cut off date is Friday 5 June.
