Scottish Book Trust: ‘The 50-Word Fiction Competition’

Can you write a story in just 50 words?

The competition includes two categories, All-Age and Young Writers (under the age of 18). All stories will be judged by the same panel and both winning stories will be published on our website.

Whether you’re a seasoned writer or you’ve always fancied picking up a pen, why not give it a go?
