East Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership's Local Area Co-ordinators are on the look-out for short story submissions (maximum length, 600 words) on the theme of 'reflections'. Stories will be compiled and printed in a booklet.

It's part of the 2022 Festival of Celebration - showcasing the artistic achievements of autistic people and individuals with learning disabilities and mental health issues locally, as well as the organisations that support them.

The deadline for entries is the end of September so now is the 'write' time to get creative.

For more information about the project, or to send in submissions, please contact the Local Area Co-ordinators directly via the webpage

Caroline Sinclair, Chief Officer of East Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership, said, "We've already received some excellent entries and look forward to more submissions arriving in the coming weeks. There's still time for you to get involved and send us a piece of writing on the theme of 'reflections'. Best of luck to everyone."

Please send in short stories by 30 September 2022 to be considered via the webpage  - where you will also find contact details if you need further information or support.
