At Scottish Book Trust we believe in the power of author events to change lives. That’s why we offer individuals and not-for-profit groups the chance to apply for financial support from our Live Literature programme, to make author events a reality in your community. Whether you want to invite an author, poet, spoken word artist,
playwright, illustrator, storyteller or comic book creator, we are on hand to pay over half their fee and all of their expenses,
including accommodation, no matter where you are. Your visiting author might lead a workshop, perform their work, be part of a local festival, or inspire pupils at a local school. It’s up to you. We help to make thousands of events possible right across Scotland every year and there are hundreds of authors for you to choose from
on our easy to use online directory. Applying to Live Literature is simple. All that we need is some information about what you plan to do,
and what it might achieve in your community. Whatever it is you want to do, we want to hear about it. Visit our website today, to find out how easy it is to apply to Live Literature for the life-changing magic of an author visit.
