Submit your Story

As part of our annual campaign to get Scotland writing we are asking primary and secondary pupils across the country to create a piece of personal or collaborative writing inspired by the 2018 theme Rebel! We encourage your pupils to either submit a piece of writing based on their own experiences of rebellion or one that is based on stories gathered from older generations.

Get your pupils chatting with their parents, grandparents or residents from your local care home.  Ask them to connect with each other and share stories about times when they rebelled. Pupils can write and submit the stories as part of our intergenerational Rebel writing campaign.

Submit your entry online by completing the form linked below. The deadline for entries is 5 October 2018:
