Case Study

What’s your story?

‘What’s your story?’ is Scottish Book Trust’s development programme for teenage writers and illustrators across Scotland. The programme has 3 main elements which develop and support the skills, voice and confidence of Scotland’s young writers and illustrators. The StoryBoard builds and empowers the skills and experience of a small group of young people through an intensive year-long programme, which includes professional mentoring, a creative retreat, and opportunities to programme and produce resources for peers. Annually we run StoryCon, our flagship conference for teen writers and illustrators, an event made up of professionally-led workshops, activities and opportunities to come together as a community of young writers. Lastly our online platform, StoryMag, runs 2 annual submissions of our online magazine providing professional feedback for all entrants.
