Scottish Books International

Scottish Books International is a new service on behalf of the literature sector in Scotland, dedicated to the international promotion of books, writers, festivals and organisations.

Following a period of scoping and research, Scottish Books International will take a strategic and co-ordinated approach to showcasing and championing Scotland's writers, publishers and festivals overseas. The service will develop a strategic plan for international activity, identifying and progressing opportunities for increased visibility for writers, publishers, festivals and organisations; identifying potential income sources, and building relationships with key partners in Scotland and overseas.

Scottish Books International is a partnership service set up by Publishing Scotland and the Edinburgh International Book Festival in conjunction with Creative Scotland and is led by Sasha de Buyl.
