The prize

We want to hear about your stories – as older Black Britons or Scots. If you are aged 60 or over and you’d like to send a piece of writing on the subject of ‘Proud To Be’, we’d be delighted to hear from you. You could send us a flash memoir, a short story, a poem, or a brief essay about you. While we are reaching out to a particular community, we’d like to say that we don’t expect you to centre race as part of what you write. The subject matter is up to you.

At the end of October, we’ll pick our favourite piece, and its author will receive a copy of The Lamplighter and Trumpet by Scotland’s former Makar (National Poet), Jackie Kay.
