The award has been established in memory of Eileen Gilmour who worked as a librarian for over 30 years, until she passed away in 2008. Eileen loved reading, writing and exchanging stories with other people, so it seems fitting that East Renfrewshire Council, her employers, have teamed up with Eileen’s family to establish this award which celebrates creativity in writing.
And here’s the important details:
Entrants are invited to submit new pieces of creative writing (circa 2,000 words) on the theme of Homecoming Scotland, under one of three categories:
- Adult (residents of East Renfrewshire)
- Secondary school pupils
- Adult (non-residents of East Renfrewshire)
Check out the terms and conditions along with details about where to submit entries here.
Good luck! 🙂
