Hugh Miller Writing Competition
http://www.scottishgeology.com/hughmiller/ March 18, 2016. Entries are invited that are inspired by the geological and landscape writings of Hugh Miller, Scotland’s celebrated self-taught geologist.

We hope that this writing competition, open to all ages, will encourage both a renewed interest in Miller’s work, a catalogue of new writings inspired by one of Scotland’s greatest nature writers and greater awareness and appreciation of Scotland’s geodiversity. – See more at: http://www.scottishgeology.com/hughmiller/#sthash.jlqASIEL.dpuf
