Author, screenwriter & finalist judge Mark Stay gives his writing tips

The Border Reivers were a lawless population of raiders, murderers and thieves. They flourished in the 16th century on the borders of England and Scotland, but were wanted by neither country. These were harsh times and they found their own ways to survive. But with loyalties, family and friendships they were just like you and I. Can you imagine? Find out more about these outlaws who lived in a place wilder than the Wild West. Learn their stories and tell them in the only way you can… your way.

Take a look at the Hawick Reiver Festival online and the ‘Story Inspiration‘ page to ignite your mind.
