Two of the Library's annual awards are now open to competitors. Writers who are Scottish or based in Scotland are invited to apply for the Robert Louis Stevenson Award, which funds a two-month residency in France at the Hotel Chevillon - an international arts centre at Grez-sur-Loing - allowing them to develop their work away from their usual environment. The award was initiated in 1994 by a Stevenson enthusiast as a continuing memorial to the writer.
Publishers of poetry pamphlets who are of Scottish origin, live in Scotland, or have an involvement with Scottish culture are eligible for the Callum Macdonald Memorial Award. This prize is given in recognition of publishing skill, and promotes the publishing of poetry in pamphlet form. Competition entries may find their way into the Library's collections.
Application forms and further details are available on our Awards page.
