26 November, 1.00pm • Performance Area • Free

Ulster-Scots Week takes place between 22-26 November 2021. The Linen Hall Library will mark the occasion with the announcement of the winners of our inaugural Ulster-Scots Writing Competition.

We received many great entries in both prose and poetry, and the judging panel of Gillian McMaster (Ulster-Scots Agency Director of Development), Frank Ferguson (University of Ulster), and Stuart Paterson (Scottish Poet) have enjoyed the task at hand.

We invite you to join us for the announcement of this year’s winners and runners-up and find out a little more about Ulster-Scots from Dr. Frank Ferguson and poet Stuart Paterson.

Refreshments will be provided so you can enjoy a cuppa tay and wee bun with your ween o’ wurds.

Please note this event is in-house at the Linen Hall Library.
