Scottish Book Trust New Writers Showcase

19:30, 30 Jan

Hear some of Scotland’s most exciting new writers perform their work, live, at Scottish Book Trust’s New Writers Awards celebration. Finding and spotlighting some of the finest new writing talent emerging in the Scottish scene, our annual awards are open for fiction, narrative non-fiction, children's and YA writing and poetry. The 2019 award judges included Leila Aboulela (Bird Summons), Bill Herbert (Omnesia) and Cathy Forde (Firestarter). The expert panellists were given the difficult task of selecting awardees from hundreds of entries. Now you have the chance to hear the chosen writers read from their own work! Find out more about the 2019 Awardees on the Scottish Book Trust website. Join host Gary McNair and some of Scotland's rising literary stars at this special, celebratory event. Scottish Book Trust inspires and supports the people of Scotland to read and write for pleasure through programmes and outreach work.
