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

membership, the aim is to further strengthen the advice to our
Board from a diverse and inclusive writing
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
