Three lucky winners will receive a prize which includes a six-month mentoring period with a published writer, a visit to a top London publisher and the chance to meet industry professionals.
Caitrin Armstrong, writer development manager at the Scottish Book Trust, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for budding writers to have their talent nurtured in a unique atmosphere of creativity and encouragement. These awards offer three young writers the chance to reach their full potential.”
