What's Your Story?

‘What's Your Story?’ is Scottish Book Trust’s development programme for teenage writers & illustrators in Scotland.


What’s Your Story? Online Magazine

What's Your Story? gives free creative writing support open to all 13–19-year-old writers and illustrators in Scotland. We champion, showcase and encourage teenage creative efforts in literature. Joining our community at What's Your Story is free for all teenagers and allows you to submit your work for professional feedback and the chance to be published in our Online Magazine.


What’s Your Story? Development Programme 2017

From now until January 3 2017 we are open for applications from 14-17-year-olds who want to apply for a space on our intensive development programme.

If you live in Scotland, you’re between 14-17 years old on our deadline, and you care about creative writing and illustration in any form – we’d love to hear from you! It’s free to apply and take part. We have one space on the programme set aside for a teenager working in Gaelic thanks to our friends at The Gaelic Books Council, but you’re welcome to apply whatever language you work in.
