Literature Alliance Scotland: Writers' Advisory Group

Literature Alliance Scotland is looking to appoint five published writers living and working in Scotland to sit on our new Writers' Advisory Group

The Group will enable a direct and formalised channel of communication between writers, our Board, and the LAS membership network, providing expert knowledge to help ensure that writers' concerns are at the heart of the LAS mission and strategy and are reflected in our activities and advocacy work. 

With writer organisations already active in our membership, the aim is to further strengthen the advice to our Board from a diverse and inclusive writing community. 

We want the Advisory Group to reflect Scottish literature in its diversity of language, genre and form, gender, ethnicity, class, sexuality, ability and religion - and their intersections - and we particularly encourage writers from under-represented groups to apply.

Members of the Advisory Group will be paid in line with the Live Literature Funding rate of £175 per session, plus travel expenses.

Further details on the Group's purpose and role are on the LAS website.

How to apply: Please email your writing CV (2 pages maximum) and a short covering letter to LAS Chair Peggy Hughes via admin@literaturealliancescotland.co.uk  telling us why you'd like to be involved and outlining up to three of the main concerns and/ or opportunities that you would like the Advisory Group to address in no more than 200 words.

DEADLINE: midnight on Monday 27 May 2019.
