Letter submission

5th March 2016 is our deadline for receiving Dearest Scotland letters to be published on our online catalogue. For our book publication, the deadline is 31st March 2015. 

What can I write?

Anything at all.  All we ask is that you start with Dearest Scotland…

We accept letters written literally, fictionally, poetically, metaphorically and more.  Humorous, romantic, two paragraphs, a one liner. Future focused while retrospective perhaps. Maybe personal with a nod to the hypothetical. And for all you artists we do love an illustration too or audio recording…

The Letters

All the letters we receive are catalogued in our letter archive.  You can browse them for inspiration, reading thoughts and visions from the Highlands to the Islands, the Central Belt to the Borders and the rest of the world.

Dearest Scotland welcomes your readership.
