What’s It All About?

What’s Your Story? is a Scotland-wide programme of support for teenage writers & illustrators.

What’s Your Story? was developed in 2015 to provide young writers and illustrators with professional support, opportunities and events. The programme was built on the advice and ambitions of Scotland’s teens at the time. After 5 years of running the programme in its current form we are taking a pause to reflect on what we have done so far and what we can improve on.
