11 June 2020

The Highland Book Prize, established in 2017, celebrates the finest published work that recognises the rich talent, landscape and cultural diversity of the Highlands.

This annual prize is open to work in fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

Presented by the Highland Society of London and facilitated by Moniack Mhor Creative Writing Centre, this literary prize aims to bring recognition to books created in or about the Highlands.

The winner will be announced at the Ullapool Book Festival, May 2021, and will be awarded £1000 prize money and a week's writing retreat at Moniack Mhor Creative Writing Centre.

The William Grant Foundation provides funding to encourage public engagement with the Highland Book Prize.

Submissions for the 2020 Prize are open.  Entries will be accepted until 5pm on Wednesday 19 August 2020. For full details and to enter, see the Highland Book Prize website.
