COMPETITION TIME – A seafood story

We’re inviting budding writers to tell us a tale based on Shetland seafood. It might be a story about a fisherman in the present day, an underwater adventure, or it might be based in the past – during the Haaf or herring eras. All we ask is that it’s based in Shetland and has a connection with fish and the sea.

We will create a page of entries and select an overall winner, who will not only receive an individual prize, but will also be awarded a prize for your class or school.

Please send your story, with you name, age, the name of your school and what class you are in to
