We’ll let you know the theme for the next issues soon, but in the meantime keep creating – there are lots of ideas for places to submit your work to on the Scottish Book Trust opportunities for young writers page!
Our style of feedback
The feedback from our Editorial Board will be constructed in a way which is clear and helpful, with any ‘professional jargon’ terms explained for you so you’ll know what they mean when you encounter them in future. We will give you some feedback on at least two positive aspects of your piece of work which you should concentrate on as areas of strength, and we will make sure to point out one thing about your piece that you can improve on to make it even better. Where it is possible, we’ll suggest a possible way to learn how to make that improvement.
Only you will be able to see your feedback – it will not be available to the public.
There will be no further discussion of your feedback once it is given to you. Once you receive your feedback, it is up to you to take the next steps forward.
