Shetland Library Young Writer Competition

The Shetland Library Young Writer competition 2021 is now closed.  The judges are currently working through the entries received - well done everyone who entered!

The Young Writer award is run annually by Shetland Library. There are three categories: age 7 - 9, age 10 - 12 and age 13 - 18.  There is an additional prize for the best piece of writing in the Shetland dialect. It is open to all young people in Shetland, and is publicised through schools and the public Library.
