Every Autumn, The Scottish Book Trust put out a call out for young people in Scotland (aged 14-17) to join as part of the What’s Your Story? development team for a year. A handful of talented teens receive a comprehensive ‘crash course’ in living and working as writers and illustrators in Scotland today – from working with a mentor to heading off on a creative retreat together as well as helping SBT create new opportunities for their fellow teens, like StoryCon and StoryMag. This year we supported one of seven young people across Scotland who worked on performance poetry, short stories, novels and illustration. The 2019 Squad have just completed their mission!
