The story of Elgin’s past 1,000 years is now being developed into an exciting visitor experience through the Castle to Cathedral to Cashmere heritage initiative due to be completed by the winter of 2016 and which invites visitors to walk through Elgin’s historic streets and discover its rich history while accessing information onsite and online through an exciting variety of approaches. There will also be an interactive website for virtual visitors.
In short, the mission is to make Elgin a compelling city, giving visitors an unforgettable sense of place.
A key part of this initiative is to present and promote Elgin as a compelling experience through a collection of short stories.
Writers are therefore being invited to submit a previously unpublished short story of no more than 3,000 words set in Elgin and the surrounding area during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
The winning entry will receive £350 and the second place £150.
The closing date for submissions is 31st May 2016. Entry is free.
