SMHAF Writing Awards
Join us for a live online ceremony to celebrate the winners and shortlisted entries from the SMHAF Writing Competition.
Hosted by author Kirstin Innes (Scabby Queen, Fishnet), the ceremony will feature readings from the winning writers, awards presentations, an exclusive performance from Blue Rose Code, and the opportunity to read our illustrated eBook. Register for your place here.
The Writing Competition is one of the festival’s most enduring successes, providing an opportunity for first time writers to be published alongside established names.
The awards ceremony is often where we discover what our festival is really about, as writers from across Scotland and further afield take inspiration from our theme in poignant, powerful, personal and often ingenious and surprising ways.
