Applications are now open for the Aberdeenshire Scriever residency hosted by the National Library of Scotland. This year, the Library is giving one Aberdeenshire-based writer the opportunity to develop creative work in Doric.

The 2022 Aberdeenshire Scriever will celebrate the richness of Scots, specifically Doric as it’s known locally, acknowledging Aberdeenshire as a stronghold for the Scots language.

The successful resident will be committed to raising the profile, understanding and appreciation of creative work in Doric by producing original work.
