Call to budding young writers

A final call has been sent out to all budding young writers to submit their short story to The Write Lines competition.

Aimed at all Borders High School pupils wanting to develop their literary skills, it has been created by Peebles Arts Festival and supported by the Peebles Creative Place 2014.

To enter, just check out, pick out a first line from the selection listed there and create a story! The story can be in any form with a maximum of 500 words and has to be sent in by July 25.

The winners will also have their work published and will have their prizes presented by renowned Scottish author, film maker and performer Alan Bissett after a buffet lunch in the Eastgate Theatre on August 23.

Entries should be emailed to info@peeblesartsfestival or handed in to the Eastgate Theatre.
