Hugh Miller Writing Competition 2015-16

Competition logoThe Scottish Geodiversity Forum and partners are delighted to announce the launch of the Hugh Miller Writing Competition, inspired by the geological and landscape writing of Hugh Miller, 1802-1856.

Open to all ages and free to enter, the competition invites entries inspired by the geological and landscape writings of Hugh Miller, Scotland’s celebrated self-taught geologist. As a poet and prolific writer, the wealth of potential inspiration that Miller provides in his work is worthy of widespread public engagement. We hope that this writing competition will encourage a renewed interest in Miller’s work, a catalogue of new writings inspired by one of Scotland’s greatest nature writers and greater awareness and appreciation of Scotland’s geodiversity.
