Book Week Scotland: support for events

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 we will be looking to build a range of events, related to books, reading and writing.

We will accept proposals from but not limited to:

  • Arts organisations
  • Museums and Heritage organisations
  • Community organisations and groups
  • 3rd sector organisations
  • Bookshops
  • Public sector organisations and Local Authority service providers

You may wish to partner with another organisation to deliver your event.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 4 May 2018.

For full details and to apply, see the Scottish Book Trust website.
