The Young Walter Scott Prize 2019 is open until October 31, 2019.
Open to writers aged 11 to 19.
Submit fiction between 800-2000 words. The judges are looking for fiction from writers which is set in a time before they were born. They accept any kind of fiction.
The winners will receive a £500 travel grant and a 2-day trip to the Baillie Gifford Borders Book Festival in Melrose, Scotland in June 2020.
All shortlisted and highly commended writers will have their work published in an anthology, and runners-up in each age category will receive a book token.
