Katharine book launch


A PLACE on one of two Moniack Mhor Writing Centre courses is awaiting the writer awarded the new Katherine Stewart Bursary celebrating the late writer's life and work.

Katharine Stewart lived just a few miles from Moniack Mhor in Abriachan and A Croft On The Hills become an iconic book about life in the Highlands.

Katharine's honest, unfussy account of crofting life in the 1960s was the first in a series of books which tell of the landscape, history and community close to Moniack Mhor.

As well as her writing success, Katharine established a folk museum which documented and educated many on Highland culture for decades.

In celebration of the writer's legacy, Moniack Mhor is offering a place on the nature writing or historical fiction course there to a writer based in the Highlands writing fiction or non-fiction.

Writers can apply for the bursary and find full details here:

The closing date is January 29.
