There’s still time to get your entry in for the competition linked to next month’s Falkirk Storytelling Festival.

Tickets can also be obtained for the events which run from September 21-24 – and many of them are free.

The story competition has three age categories: 11 years and under, 12-17 years; and 18 years and over.

It should be an original work in 300 words or less on the theme of My Town. Prizes include a £50 Howgate gift card.

Events during the weekend will take place in venues in the heart of the town and feature a host of authors and musicians, including Christopher Brookmyre, Alan Bissett, David Goutcher and David McPhail.

Brian McNeill will host a musicians workshop on the Saturday with a concert in the Faw Kirk that evening.
