Live Literature Funding Open

Happy New Year!

Oh right, it’s February already.

I just wanted to highlight that Scottish Book Trust’s Live Literature funding programme is now open for applications.

Live Literature funding is open to Scottish schools, libraries, community groups and not-for-profits. It provides partial funding for author visits, meaning over half of author fees and all expenses are covered by Scottish Book Trust. This applies to both in-person and remote events running any time before 31st March 2024.

You can find me on the Live Literature Directory here!

The upcoming deadlines are 20th February, 21st August and 20th November.

I love doing events and, while I am scaling back the number of events I’m planning for 2023 in comparison to last year, enquiries are still very welcome.

In the meantime, here are some photos from a few of my favourite events of 2022. It was a big year – five festivals, two libraries, around 18 schools and a five-week exhibition… no wonder I’m tired!
