    The winners of this year’s William Soutar Writing Prize were announced at the AK Bell Library in Perth on Saturday 25 August as part of Perth & Kinross Libraries Writers’ Day.

    The annual William Soutar Writing Prize alternates between poetry and short stories, with this year concentrating on the short story.

    Scottish broadcaster and writer Billy Kay, who judged the 79 short stories entered, presented the first prize to Diane Chorley from Scone for her story “Tea at the Ritz”.
