Calling all creative writers! As part of the celebrations for the first ever Book Week Scotland (26th November – 2nd December 2012), the Special Collections Centre is running a “Flash Fiction” creative writing competition.
Get inspired by four fabulous images from the Special Collections Centre’s rare books and archives and send us your 500-word short story. The winner will be announced at the beginning of Book Week Scotland and will receive £50 worth of book vouchers for Waterstones. The competition will be judged by prize-winning author Wayne Price, and all competition entries will be published on the University of Aberdeen website.
The deadline for submissions is 12 noon on 12th November 2012. You can see small versions of the four images below; for more information about the competition and higher resolution versions of the images, visit www.abdn.ac.uk/library/about/special
