Here at Merchiston Publishing work is well underway on one of our exciting live projects: The Pushkin Prizes Anthology 2014, a collection of creative writing by Scottish and Russian teenagers aged between 12-14. Now that we have recieved all the winning entries from the competition, the editorial team are working extra hard to get these ready for publication and our production team have started working on some cover designs to make the collection vibrant and appealing.
We feel passionately about publishing the anthology, through which we hope to raise the profile of The Pushkin Prizes throughout Scotland and promote creative writing as a valuable endeavour for pupils and teachers. We hope to promote the project as widely as possible and so are aiming to provide at least one copy of the anthology free of charge to every secondary school in Scotland.
However, we need your help. In order for us to distribute at least one copy of the anthology to each secondary school in Scotland (of which there are more than 400), we require your donations. The aim of this project is entirely charitable as we want to bring a love of creative writing to as wide an audience as possible. With your kind help, we can continue to support The Pushkin Prizes and encourage budding new writers to pick up their pens!
If you’re still to be convinced, we hope our video will reassure you that this project is worthwhile donating your spare change to. To donate and view our video, please visit this page: http://www.sponsume.com/project/pushkin-prizes-2014
We would like to extend thanks in advance for any contributions to our project!
