“Men are born with various manias: from my earliest childhood, it was mine to make a plaything of imaginary series of events; and as soon as I was able to write, I became a good friend to the paper maker”
– Robert Louis Stevenson, My First Book: Treasure Island
The Edinburgh Robert Louis Stevenson Club and Edinburgh Napier University have for three years collaborated on running a competition which aims to inspire young writers in Scotland by asking them to produce a piece of creative writing which draws on the rich and rewarding legacy that Robert Louis Stevenson has left us in his works of fiction, poetry, travel writing and essays.
The competition for 2016-2017 is now open, and we’ll be accepting entries from now until the closing date of 28th April!
For full competition details, read the Competition Leaflet.
