The group will spend the week beginning 22 August in Scotland meeting Scotland-based publishers, agents and writers in a varied programme of events across the country. 

The purpose of the visit is to help develop relationships between the international publishing community and the Scottish sector, facilitate rights selling and bring Scottish books to an international audience. Previous fellows have acted as advocates for the Scottish publishing scene. Prior to the pandemic, Scotland stand receptions at the Frankfurt and London Book Fairs were a hive of international activity as Fellows reconnect with the Scottish publishers. 

The award-winning programme from the network, trade and development body for the book publishing sector in Scotland is supported by funding from the arts body Creative Scotland.
