Republishing the same author

We publish work by both emerging and established writers and strive to support the work of professional and aspiring writers. Due to the volume of submissions we receive, it is our policy not to publish work by the same contributor in consecutive issues to help make way for new writers. If your work has appeared in the Eildon Tree previously, please refrain from submitting further work until at least 2 issues have passed since your work was printed.

Writers Groups

Borders writers' forums

These forums involve a group of published writers from across the Borders meeting regularly, hosting events and publishing anthologies. They are devoted to the very best contemporary writing from the Scottish Borders.

The forum organises workshops, writers' visits, and readings in support of our members' professional development. The forum also promotes the work of writers living and working in the Scottish Borders.

  • Do you write?
  • Are you published?
  • Do you want to make contact with other writers in the area, for support, advice, and social and literary activities?

We welcome new members. Our readings are open to everyone who wishes to take part, or spectate. Contact Iona MacGregor macgregor.iona@btopenworld.com

Eyewrite

Eyemouth writers' group, Eyewrite, meets informally to encourage each other by offering their work for constructive criticism. We all write regularly and some of our work has been published.

We chat about writing and are very friendly. New members are welcome.

Contact Heather Johnston for further information on 01890 771 820.
