The theme for our Bold Types: Creative Writing Competition this Autumn is Blether – which we think is perfect! The deadline to send in your short stories is 31st October and we have some events to build up your boldness this Autumn. Join us for the showcase in November and hear from the shortlisted entrants!

Bold Types: Creative Writing Showcase, Thursday 21st November, 5.30pm to 7.30pm, £2/Free

Hear the shortlisted writers read their stories in front of our wonderfully supportive and encouraging panel of judges: prize-winning poet Alycia Pirmohamed; Alison Irvine, creative writing tutor and acclaimed author of creative non-fiction; and GWL’s own librarian, Wendy Kirk. Winners will be announced on the night. Prizes include a 1:1 session with one of our judges and a selection of books.

A very inclusive and friendly event. A great event to meet new writers.” Bold Types shortlisted entrants

Supported by Book Week Scotland and the Gaelic Books Council.
