Apply for £325 to put on a public event as part of Book Week Scotland this November.

Book Week Scotland is an annual celebration of books and reading run by Scottish Book Trust. This year it will take place from Monday 19 to Sunday 25 November 2018.

Organisations can apply for support to hold an event as part of the Book Week Scotland celebrations - event support will be allocated at £325 per event or activity. This can be used to cover: an author fee of at least £175 per event; author expenses (e.g. travel, accommodation) and event expenses (e.g. venue hire, catering, prizes, books to give away).

The theme for Book Week Scotland 2018 is ‘Rebel’. Not all events or activities need to be informed by the theme, as the Scottish Book Trust is keen to build a range of events, related to books, reading and writing.
