'Now more than ever, it's vital that we maintain our international connections and ambition. The book world is fuelled by relationships that we make through book fairs, selling rights and licensing, and the Fellowship scheme allows us to develop and deepen those relationships between the Scottish publishing industry and the rest of the world.' Marion Sinclair, Chief Executive of Publishing Scotland

This is a wonderful opportunity to engage with some of the most talented writers working in Scotland today and to mingle with international publishing professionals. The showcase is free and will be followed by a wine reception. All Welcome.
