Jackie Kay, Scotland’s Makar, will lead the judging panel for Get Write In, a new and exciting writing competition for all school-aged children in Scotland who are looked after or have experienced care.
CELCIS (the Centre for Excellence for Looked After Children in Scotland) has teamed up with The Scottish Book Trust, Who Cares? Scotland, the School of Education at the University of Strathclyde, and the world famous Edinburgh International Book Festival to run this distinct and exciting competition.
I’m delighted to be part of the judging panel with other excellent writers and people committed to making the lives of young people as good as they can be.
If you are a young person, or want to pass the details onto a young person you know, then just go to the CELCIS Get Write In page. Good luck!
