Somewhere out there, in an S1 or S2 class in a school in Scotland, there are ten writers worthy of the title Pushkin Prize-winner. Are you one of them?

What can you write about? ANYTHING! We're looking for stories, poems, plays, articles, memoirs - anything you like on a subject of your choice. The world is your oyster.

Why not look at the winning entries from previous years? You'll find a wonderful variety of writing of all kinds.

The Pushkin Prizes 2019 will be launched in the late summer - but it's never too soon to start preparing your folio.
