The writing award was created to help encourage and support emerging Ayrshire writers. Imprint patron, Zoe Strachan, along with her colleagues at the University of Glasgow’s Edwin Morgan School of Creative Writing, will be judging three categories Story, Poetry and Other. Each category will have a winner and a runner up, the winner will receive £125 and the runners up receive £50 each. Winners will be announced on Thursday 28 November at a special Imprint Writing Awards ceremony.
