If stories be the food of life, write on!

With just under a week to go until the deadline for Nourish there is still time to submit your piece! 


The Brief

Do you have a tasty tale to tell on the theme of Nourish?

Whether it’s about growing your own, howking tatties, creative cooking, sharing a poke of chips or a celebratory feast, we want a bite of what fuels your body and mind.

Food can evoke memories, connect us with others, present difficult choices or simply set us up for the day – it can challenge and inspire us and offer nourishment beyond what’s on the plate.

You can write in any form you like – story, poem, letter, song, play – and we welcome submissions in Gaelic, Scots and English.

Entries should be no longer than 1000 words and should be on the theme of Nourish. This theme can be interpreted broadly but stories must be true and about your own experiences.

Submit your piece before midnight on Wednesday 7th June to be in with a chance of being included in our e-book for Book Week Scotland 2017.



Read some of the fantastic entries to the project so far, including stories from Hairy Biker Dave Myers and foodie and best-selling author Mary Contini.
