About Young Writers

Museums and Galleries Edinburgh and City of Edinburgh Tours will run a Children’s Ghost Story Competition over the autumn term in conjunction with Edinburgh Schools. The entries will include ballads and verse as well as stories.

From 6 November, the winning entries will be exhibited in the Writers’ Museum.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Young Writers are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
