Write Awards Shortlist Announced!

With the awards less than a week away we thought it was about time to let the world know who has been shortlisted for the award. There was a really high quality of writing on display and narrowing each category down to 5 was difficult.

Congratulations to all who have been shortlisted! The judges selected a winner and a runner up from each category, which will be revealed at The Scottish Parliament next Tuesday.
