Scottish Schools' Young Writer of the Year Award
On Friday 12th June, S6 pupil Stuart Munro attended an awards ceremony at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow after being shortlisted as one of the top 16 young writers in Scotland. The Scottish Schools' Young Writer of the Year Award was open to 16-19year olds and Stuart fought off competition from over 200 hundred entrants to secure a place at the inaugural awards ceremony. On the night, Stuart received a commendation for his bold non-fiction article 'Books, not Blockbusters'. The judges were impressed with Stuart's articulate and stylish use of language and felt his voice deserved recognition and the chance to be shared with a wider readership. As a result Stuart's work will be published in the Scottish Review, one of the country's most eminent literary publications - a very fitting award for an eminent young writer. Well done Stuart!
