Hugh Miller writing competition


Testimonies of the Rocks: the Hugh Miller writing competition is inspired by the geological and landscape writing of Hugh Miller, 1802-1856, and organised by the Scottish Geodiversity Forum, The Friends of Hugh Miller and other partners. 

Hugh Miller was self-taught and was a prolific creator of poetry and prose exploring and celebrating Scotland's landscapes and the geology that makes them special. Entries from under 16s as well as from older enthusiasts (i.e. over 16s) are invited. The writing is to be directly inspired by the work of Hugh Miller and could take several different forms, for example, non-fiction, fiction or poem.
