What’s Your Story? (Scotland)

What’s Your Story? gives free creative writing support to all 13–19-year-old writers and illustrators in Scotland. We champion, showcase and encourage teen creative efforts in literature, whatever form these efforts take. What’s Your Story? is run by Scottish Book Trust and has been created with the help and advice of teen writers and illustrators.

Our online magazine has three themed issues per year. Submissions to each issue receive personal professional feedback from our editorial board and are considered for publication.

We also run a mentoring programme and this year we’re working in conjunction with the National Library of Scotland to support and develop 7 promising young writers.  As well as personal support and mentoring, the young writers also programme and run a writing and illustration conference open to teens from all over Scotland.

This project is run by Scottish Book Trust (Scotland).
