Those lovely folks at Scottish Book Trust have allowed me to join their Live Literature scheme.
If you fancy asking a writer to join your book group for a Q&A or to come along to run a workshop in your school, the Live Lit scheme could be for you.
Just search their online database for authors you love (or those you may never have heard of before) to see who is available to do what. Then apply for a session and if you are successful, Scottish Book Trust will fund half the cost.
Great literary events at your fingertips!
