Live Literature brings books to life and inspires readers through live events with professional writers in communities across Scotland. We give more than 700 writers, poets, playwrights, storytellers, illustrators, graphic novelists and cartoonists the opportunity to meet wider audiences and to earn fees for their work.
The reach of Live Literature is exceptional. Events are held in nurseries, schools, libraries, parks, prisons, adult education classes, drop in centres for homeless and vulnerable people, hospital wards, art galleries, outdoor activity centres, care homes, writing groups and book groups.
This project is run by Scottish Book Trust (Scotland)
