We're celebrating 25 years of The Pushkin Prizes in 2013!
It's a unique opportunity for S1 and S2 pupils to attend a creative writing week in May 2013 at the Arvon Foundation Moniack Mhor Writers' Centre, working with other young writers and two professional writers - Gerry Cambridge and Diana Hendry.
Folios of three pieces of writing in any genre and on any subject must arrive by 18th December 2012. The authors of the ten most promising folios will be invited to Pushkin Prizewinners' Week where they'll be joined by two winners from a parallel competition in St Petersburg.
All details - including lots of information and guidance for young writers and teachers - are on the website.
This opportunity is available in: All Scotland
