About Nourish

If stories be the food of life, write on!

As part of our annual campaign to get Scotland writing we are asking people to write their pieces on nourish and what it means to them.

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.

Even if you’ve never written before, give it a try! We encourage you to submit up to 1,000 words in any form you like – story, poem, comic strip, play or letter – and we welcome entries in English, Scots and Gaelic.

Our favourite stories will be published in an e-book on our website for Book Week Scotland 2017.

Please read our terms and conditions before submitting your work.
