Scottish Book Trust has just opened applications for the 2011 Young Writers Awards. They’re looking for three teenagers to be mentored by an established teen author between October 2011 and February 2012. They will meet with their mentor, and each other, five times over the six month period, develop their creative writing, meet agents and writers and visit a top London publisher.
This is a superb opportunity and is completely free. Scottish Book Trust will cover the travel costs to and from the mentoring sessions which will take place in Edinburgh on Saturdays.
Application deadline is Wednesday 31st August 2011. Further details and how to apply online, contact www.scottishbooktrust.com/youngwritersawards
