A Peebles Arts Festival writing competition, with support from Peebles Creative Place, The Write Lines was open to everyone between the ages of 13 and 19 from across the Borders. The competition generated a wonderful selection of entries covering mainly short stories (‘flash fiction’), with the winning pieces exhibiting a particularly high standard of writing. Congratulations to all the winners who had the added thrill of receiving their prizes from one of Scotland’s top young writers, Allan Wilson, at a special reception in the Eastgate’s Anne Younger Studio on 23 August.
