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…
Write your letter
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.
